Description

NEXTET New Music presents: Journeys of Life and the Soul Music from Copland House with performances by distinguished UNLV faculty and students Jennifer Bellor, artistic director

MUSIC FROM COPLAND HOUSE (MCH) is the internationally-acclaimed touring ensemble-in-residence at Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home near New York City, an award-winning creative center for American music. Hailed by The New Yorker as “bold,” “adventurous,” and “superb,” MCH occupies a special place as the only wide-ranging American repertory ensemble journeying across 150 years of the U.S. musical landscape.

“Exciting listening! Music from Copland House proves an ideal interpreter, careening with fastidious abandon among the many moods.” - TimeOutNY
