During Black History month, we celebrate the infusion of the jazz spirit into classical concert music. William Grant Still’s Darker Beauty reflects the twin themes of sorrow and hope in the African American experience. Pianist Michelle Cann bursts with vitality as she brings the infectious drive and exuberance of George Gershwin’s twin rhapsodies to the Weill Hall stage. Aaron Copland’s iconic ballet Appalachian Spring unites the simple beauty of Shaker hymns with syncopated dance rhythms and haunting tenderness.
