Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring depicts life in a Pennsylvania town as a family establishes themselves in a new home. Before becoming an orchestral conductor, Maestro Blachly devoted himself to composition, with over 40 commissions for ensembles of all sizes. In this one-of-a-kind program, a series of six “musical portraits” he composed over the past year for friends of the JSO will be performed by chamber ensembles and solo instruments. This partnership with Cambria City’s The Steeples Project forms a part of the inSPIREd series, which began during the pandemic and returns by popular demand.
