Copland on Canvas in Roberts Recital Hall at UAH. Is that—could it be—yes, in fact, there is a painter in the orchestra! Local artist Pamela Willis is well-known for her sensitive landscape and abstract paintings, and will collaborate with the HSO to interpret Copland on canvas, letting the music inspire her artistry in real time. Gregory will lead performances of some of the American legend’s most vibrant music: Quiet City for trumpet, cor anglais, and strings; the lively and adventurous Nonet for Strings, and Copland’s famous Appalachian Spring.
