Aurora Orchestra’s 2014 season hits the road running!
2014 opens with a Road Trip across America in the sublime company of Aaron Copland, Charles Ives, and John Adams. Kentucky-born singer-songwriter Dawn Landes joins us as special guest, performing newly- commissioned folk song arrangements by Nico Muhly, ‘one of the hottest composers on the planet’ (The Telegraph).
The concert includes John Adams’ Chamber Symphony featuring the wild-eyed final movement ‘Roadrunner’. Check out the above video to get a flavour!
