To complete our season, the Sinfonietta welcomes the return of Artistic Partner Eric Jacobsen, celebrating the 100th anniversary of one of America’s most beloved composers. Bernstein’s one-act operatic masterpiece, Trouble in Tahiti, offers a social commentary on mid-century American life in the suburbs, infused with the popular music sounds of the time. Paired with this work is the original chamber instrumentation of Appalachian Spring - Copland’s most beloved composition, and a piece respected and loved by Bernstein himself.
