Aaron Copland appearing at IWU, 1958.

Composer Aaron Copland was the featured guest for Illinois Wesleyan University's Seventh Annual Symposium of Contemporary American Music, held in mid-February 1958.
Copland, one of the greatest American artists (music other other-wise) of the 20th century, is seen here listening to R. Dwight Drexler, professor of piano and theory, and his wife, Maxine, prepare for a performance of Copland’s “Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson.”
