America Awakens

April 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm May 2, 2021 @ 6:00 pm

America Awakens Square

Please join Maestro Wes Kenney and the Fort Collins Symphony for this virtual on-demand concert of American composers and themes.

Spring is in the air, the light of awareness is dawning, change is within reach, growth is on the horizon, and pride lends a bounce to one’s step.

This streamed virtual concert features two of Aaron Copland’s compositions–the enduring American anthem, Appalachian Spring, and a coming-of-age story, The Tender Land Suite– and the gospel/jazz/blues-inspired Church Street Serenade by composer Adolphus Hailstork.

Pre-recorded at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center, this concert is available to stream at your leisure over the weekend of April 30-May 2.

Tickets are available for $25 per device (Smart TV, computers, iPads, etc.) at LCTix.com

Streaming April 30th – May 2nd
