American Seasons

Announcing the Little Flower Concert Series 2019-2020 Season Opener!

Though composers the world over have always found inspiration in the seasons, this concert focuses on a distinctly American palette, evoking the pastoral colors of Appalachia, the snowed forests of New England, the sun-soaked Piedmont, and the rolling plains beyond the Mississippi. The concert features a performance of the original 13-instrument chamber suite of Aaron Copland’s ballet Appalachian Spring, winner of the 1945 Pulitzer Prize in Music upon its premiere at the Library of Congress, along with works by Edward MacDowell, Steve Danyew, and George Gershwin.



George Gershwin - "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess

Steve Danyew - Winter Song

Edward MacDowell - Woodland Sketches

Aaron Copland - Appalachian Spring


The ensemble ad|hoc, a music collective comprising young classical musicians of the Washington metro area and led by Little Flower organist Tim Laughlin, is pleased to present this free concert thanks to support from the Church of the Little Flower and its parish donors.

Free parking on site. All Little Flower Concert Series events are free and open to the public.
