American Chamber Players at Converse College

American Chamber Players

To open the 30th Anniversary season of the Carlos Moseley Chamber Music Series at Converse College, the American Chamber Players were joined by distinguished guest artists for a performance of Aaron Copland's masterpiece, Appalachian Spring. This American classic was premiered at the Library of Congress in 1944, and the ACP and friends performed it in Copland's brilliant, seldom-heard original version for thirteen instruments.
