Appalachian Spring

When: Sat., Feb. 9, 8 p.m. 2013

From the Martha Graham Dance Company's performance of the original in 1944 at the Library of Congress, to Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman playing a heart-stopping sectional arrangement for President Barack Obama's first inauguration, Appalachian Spring has enjoyed a deservedly high profile. The Colorado Springs Philharmonic continues that tradition when it takes up Aaron Copland's composition at 8 tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org, $23 to $54). As Isadora Bennett first wrote of it in the Christian Science Monitor, the Pulitzer Prize-winning piece "implies, in its title, not Spring in the Appalachians, but the 'Spring' of a young America, looking toward new frontiers with an ecstasy of high hopes." — Bryce Crawford

Price: $19-$59
