Quiet City seems to have become a musical entity, superseding the original reasons for its composition…

Aaron Copland

This concert’s program includes “Quiet City” by Aaron Copland. The piece was originally written to accompany a play of the same name, but Copland later said that the piece “seems to have become a musical entity, superseding the original reasons for its composition”. We hope that you will join us to explore the vibrancy of urban life with Copland and others in “City Life”.
