Copland’s ballet Appalachian Spring tells the story of a young bride and groom and the joy, fear, and uncertainty they experience as they settle into their new farmhouse in the early 19th century. For many, Aaron Copland embodies the essence of the American musical personality, one that reflects all of this country’s characteristics and ideals.
