For their upcoming presentation Appalachian Spring, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has invited American violin prodigy Simone Porter to perform. In the first half of the program Ms. Porter, deftly accompanied by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, will perform Samuel Barber’s soulful Violin Concerto followed by Aaron Copland’s sweeping ballet suite Appalachian Spring. In the second half of the program the spotlight will shine on Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich and his exuberant 9th Symphony. One lucky Big Deal winner will receive a pair of tickets to attend the Nov. 14 performance at Bass Performance Hall.
