Mark O’Connor: Americana Symphony “Variations on Appalachia Waltz”

We’ll be celebrating Independence Day tonight with our Evening Masterwork: Mark O’Connor’s Americana Symphony, a work that evokes images of the American expansion westward while fusing O’Connor’s folk roots with the sounds of the symphony orchestra. The work is also based off of an earlier composition O’Connor wrote called “Appalachia Waltz.”
