J Dominic joins us to explore the Aaron Copland-Martha Graham collaboration on “Appalachian Spring” and its connection to Hart Crane’s American epic poem, “The Bridge.” Dominic seeks to answer the question posed by noted author Annegret Fauser: “… what are we talking about when we speak of Appalachian Spring?” As a culmination, Dominic will merge for us Copland’s music with its inspirational source: a portion of the lyric poem, “The Bridge,” reuniting a most beloved piece of Americana and its originating source.
