An All-American piece

I get a sense of pride when I actually recognize something that gets played on the local public classical station here. It's exciting to actually put "The Art of Listening" into practice. Today, I was listening to the station thinking that sounds twentieth-centuryish. Well, then I heard it, the part of Coapland's Appalachian Spring with "Simple Gifts". Are they playing the whole thing? Time will tell, i guess. But it's cool to actually get something right. What a great song to play on the 4th of July.

if I recall, the piece is a half hour long, and only written in one movement, so yes, most likely, they were playing the whole hting.
