Aaron Copland at IWU February 1958

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.”
