PROGRAM
Copland – Symphony No. 3 

Aaron Copland’s Third Symphony has been called "the Great American Symphony," with some of the composer's grandest and most inspiring music — including his Fanfare for the Common Man.

  • When his Third was premiered, Copland said he intended for the work to “reflect the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.” 
  • Of the work, Leonard Bernstein said, “The symphony has become an American monument, like the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial.”
