East Coast meets West Coast in this celebration of Americana. First, William Schuman channels colonial-era themes in the haunting New England Triptych, and Leonard Bernstein embraces the cultural melting pot of New York City in his Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. After intermission, we hear Aaron Copland’s take on the legendary outlaw Billy the Kid, and we see his evocation of life in the rural West as Boulder Ballet brings us original choreography for his iconic ballet, Rodeo
