Spring and nature are the inspirations for the bookends of this program. The orchestral suite from Aaron Copland's The Tender Land is taken from Copland's only full-length opera, whose action centers on a Midwestern family of farmers and the traditions they uphold. Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 2, occasionally referred to as its composer's "Pastoral" symphony, closes the season with one of the glories of the Romantic period. Sammamish Symphony audiences will have another chance to hear a rising young soloist, as this concert will feature the winner of the SSO's annual Youth Concerto Competition.
