  1. Three Places in New England - Charles Ives
  2. Dances for Orchestra (world premiere) - Errollyn Wallen
  3. Appalachian Spring - Aaron Copland

From homespun folk hymns to blazing marching bands, experience musical America at its most visionary – in the hands of vibrant young California-born conductor (and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland alumnus) Ryan Bancroft.

Aaron Copland’s warm and generous ballet score Appalachian Spring combines foot-tapping folk dances with moving musical evocations of America’s vast landscapes. Charles Ives, however, paints mystical musical portraits of three New England sites, with ghostly memories of Civil War tunes alongside raucous parading bands jostling for our attention.

In between, we unveil a brand new piece from the vivid musical imagination of Belize-born, now Scottish-based composer Errollyn Wallen, commissioned by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Irish Chamber Orchestra and Swedish Chamber Orchestra

Please note: There will be a Dementia-Friendly concert on Thu 2 Nov, 2pm in the Queen's Hall. It will be a shortened programme featuring only Copland’s Appalachian Spring.

Kindly supported by Erik Lars Hansen and Vanessa C L Chang
