Meridian Symphony: 'Wild Wild West' 

Saturday, Feb. 28

Winning in the West.

Winning in the West.

Feel the spirit of the early pioneers as the Meridian Symphony continues its 25th season celebration with "Wild Wild West." It's a night of performances including Aaron Copland's 1948 suite, "The Red Pony," originally written as the soundtrack for a film adaptation of John Steinbeck's novel of the same name, and John Williams' (Star Wars) soundtrack for the 1972 film The Cowboys, starring John Wayne. The orchestra will also perform the world premiere of the "Rocky Mountain Suite" by Colorado-based composer Jonathan Peters. Peters, who lives in the Rockies, found inspiration for the suite not only in his own backyard but also in the works of writers such as poet Charles Edwin Hewes ("Of Elk and Beaver") and author Zora Neale Hurston ("Water Leaves the Divide).
