Curt Cacioppo's "When the Orchard Dances Ceased" performed at Carnegie Hall

On Monday, November 30th at 7:30 pm, the world premiere of Curt Cacioppo's "When the Orchard Dances Ceased" will be performed at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall in NYC by the American Composers Orchestra. This piece is an homage to the Navajo people of Canyon de Chelly. In the mid 1800s, the U.S. army drove the Navajo out of their ancestral lands in the Canyon, where they had cultivated thousands of peach trees for generations. In his work, Cacioppo conjures the melodies and instruments of the Navajo, a popular Irish tune of the time, and U.S. military marches. The work includes parts for Native American folk voice and percussion instruments, both of which will be performed by the composer. For more information:
