Aaron Copland's infamous piece, Appalachian Spring , is in the popular canon of western orchestral music for professional and collegiate orchestras. Often considered populist, it is programmed to please both audiences and to showcase virtuosic orchestral playing. The work is technically challenging for each section of the orchestra, for ensemble unity, and for the conductor. This report focuses on the challenges faced by the conductor of a collegiate symphony orchestra in performing this work and includes suggested solutions to potential problems.
