In this uplifting conclusion to their inaugural season, Resonance Works presents Natural Frequency, featuring musical works that evoke imagery of the natural world. One of Pittsburgh’s favorite baritones, Daniel Teadt joins the Resonance Works String Quartet in Samuel Barber’s Dover Beach. The “darkling plain” of the Arnold poem is juxtaposed in the program with Copland’s iconic Appalachian Spring Suite, a celebration of the open fields and endless possibilities of American pioneers in the wilds of Pennsylvania.
