Celebrate the first glimmers of spring with a sweeping narrative concert featuring our area’s finest young musicians and Cedar Falls resident Bill Witt’s prairie photography. Inspired by the sounds of our state, Jonathan Chenette’s Rural Symphony is a whimsical depiction of life on the Iowa prairie. Antonín Dvorák’s American Suite, composed just after his stay in nearby Spillville, takes a panoramic approach to the richness of our country’s folk music. Aaron Copland’s signature poignant voice is front and center in rarely performed music from his opera The Tender Land, inspired by Midwestern American farm life.
