Durham Symphony Orchestra: N.C. Music and All That Jazz

When: Sat., April 2, 8 p.m. 2016

Suffused with the fresh air of the season, this bill features two vibrant imaginings of simpler times. “Simple Gifts” from Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring is based on a Shaker song that celebrates the beauty of life in its unadorned state. Appalachian Lament is by Raleigh-based composer-teacher Terry Mizesko. The evening also includes a tribute to the masterful composer and arranger (and former Hillsborough resident) Billy Strayhorn, and the folk-Americana sounds of Steph Stewart and the Boyfriends. —David Klein
