WORLD PREMIERE COMPOSITION BY JEFF TYZIK

Join your RPO in celebrating Michael Butterman’s 18 seasons as a staff conductor! Copland’s Appalachian Spring is the background to the Frequent Flyer Cirque Troupe’s aerial dances—a visual treat, high above the orchestra. In honor of Michael’s tenure with the RPO, Principal Pops Conductor has written a piece, to be premiered during this gala event.
