Lone Ranger Rossini

Few composers had more success in their youth than the legendary Gioachino Rossini. His overture to William Tell takes us on a vivid journey from sunrise through a dramatic storm to meet our hero galloping into battle. The famous overture concludes with the most recognizable music of all time, known to many as the theme from The Lone Ranger. Aaron Copland introduces us to a real legend of the American West, Billy the Kid. Copland’s evocative music brings together fragments of real cowboy tunes within expansive harmonies that conjure up the western frontier. Come hear these stories and meet the talented winners of our Competition for Young Musicians.
