His thorough 1999 book, Aaron Copland: The Life and Work of an Uncommon Man – which happens to be one of my textbooks in my current CGU course, “American Titans: The Music of Copland and Bernstein” – has been described by the New York Times as “the definitive study of Aaron Copland’s life and work, no doubt for a long time to come,” and has received the Irving Lowens Award from the Society for American Music and a Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP.
My classmates and I are truly honored to have him as our guest!
Where?: Albrecht Auditorium, in the John Stauffer Hall of Learning.
P.S. – You can find all sorts of great artifacts from Copland’s life on the Library of Congress website! Check it out here!
