Happy Birthday Aaron Copland

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Monday, 14 November, 2011

American composer Aaron Copland was born on this date in the year 1900.

In honor of his 111th Birthday, today’s program on Radio Riel’s Main stream is all Modern American Classical music, with a heavy emphasis on Copland’s works as well as pieces by Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, Leroy Anderson and more.

Gabrielle is a rabid Copland Fangirl and once had a music professor tell her that he would not be surprised that she would marry Aaron Copland if it were possible. Copland was actually alive when the professor made this statement, however the 70 year age different might have been a challenge.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
