Omaha Area Youth Orchestras Spring Concert

Omaha Area Youth Orchestras Spring Concert
March 6, 2016

Performance at Joslyn Art Museum, 2200 Dodge Street, Omaha, NE 68102

Omaha Area Youth Orchestras’ Youth Philharmonic will perform Aaron Copland’s memorable “Hoe-Down” from his ballet Rodeo as part of a concert of classical masterpieces and audience favorites. The legendary Agnes de Mille, choreographer for this ballet, described it as “Taming of the Shrew with Cowboys.” Copland used folk tunes and his signature harmonic simplicity to create an icon of American music that sounds like it could be the soundtrack for the entire Wild West.
