MUSIC: Copland: Billy the Kid
Saddle up for a ride through the legendary American West, a land of sagebrush and snowcapped mountains, ghost towns and wagon trails. Join a lively group of weathered cowboys living a tradition largely unchanged by time. From bunkhouse griddlecakes and a roundup at dawn to a dusty cattle drive, Chaps and Spurs summons up the adventure-loving, independent spirit in us all.
PREMIERE: New Orleans Philharmonic
