California Philharmonic - Cowboys and Copland
Join Long Beach Heritage for a summer evening filled with music and magic at the historic Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia. Relax, rejoice and revel in the extraordinary sounds of music performed by the acclaimed California Philharmonic. It’s the perfect way to spend a Saturday summer evening with your family, friends, a world class orchestra and the beloved Maestro Victor Vener.
We will be experiencing “Cowboys and Copland.” This is America’s unique story that has inspired composers worldwide. Whether it’s the unforgettable sound of Ennio Morricone’s music from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly; Elmer Bernstein’s thrilling theme from The Magnificent Seven; Aaron Copland’s ballet Billy The Kid or the stirring strains of How The West Was Won, composers have given voice to our country’s heritage and landscape. And what’s an evocation of the Old West without a trip south of the border? El Salón Mexico, Copland’s musical depiction of a village bar and its compelling dance rhythms is a perpetual delight. This musical journey across America ends with a trip from the small towns of Illinois to the battleground of Gettysburg as we are treated to a performance of the Lincoln Portrait, Copland’s heartfelt tribute to one of our greatest presidents, with a special guest narrator.
