About this Performance
Teddy Abrams leads a concert of familiar and brand-new American music, including Aaron Copland’s ballet suite that evokes the grandeur of pastoral frontiers. Chris Thile, who was called “a genre-defying musical genius” by NPR, offers his own musical take on the American experience. The bluegrass mandolinist behind Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek brings his newly written concerto that he says tells “the true story of the time I attempted to impress a Starbucks executive and accidentally met Carrie Fisher as a result. It’s a DOOZY!” We’re not quite sure what that means either, but we’re excited to find out.See other concerts in this series
