LISA NARDI– In This Heart (An Elegy for Strings)
MOZART– Flute Concerto No. 1
COPLAND– Suite from Appalachian Spring

The ethereal In This Heart is your embarkation point for the works that encompass music from Lisa Nardi’s elegy for victims of violence to the Suite from Copland’s 1940s ballet about hope and dreaming and searching for the place just right (you’ll recognize the beloved “Simple Gifts,” based on a Shaker hymn). In between, Georgia Mills, one of our female conductors on the Focus Series, also leads Mozart’s graceful—and virtuosic—Flute Concerto with plenty of opportunities for OPO’s Principal Flute Colleen Blagov to display her abundant talents. Plus, Stravinsky’s spirited Octet for winds and brass.
