Intermediate Level Research one classical composer and one musician from the last 100 years.
I choose Aaron Copland and Peter, Paul and Mary. Aaron Copland was one of the centuries foremost composer with highly influential music that had a blend of classical, folk and jazz. He wanted to compose songs with sounds that would be seen as “American” One of his pieces “Appalachian Spring” is a story about a bride and her husband setting up house in the wilderness. Copland wrote the music score for full orchestra and used dancers and singers in his music. He wanted to portray the “Simple Gifts” or simple life.
In contrast, Peter, Paul and Mary sang their songs with guitar. Their main theme was racial equality. They wanted to inspire the nation to unite in song and spirit. The music of Copland and Peter, Paul and Mary both wanted to express, through music, something about America. Copland’s idea was creating a peaceful and simple life style of the pioneers or the noisy traffic in the big cities. Whereas, Peter, Paul and Mary wanted to bring people together to sing songs about liberty and justice for all.

Thank you for sharing this information! I haven't heard of either of them before. I do love the idea of inspiring others through music and song. It makes for such beautiful music. Thank you for stopping by. Good luck with your music badge.

Some time ago there was a PBS special on Peter, Paul, and Mary. I'd always admired them, but more so after learning more. And Aaron Copland. Thank you for reminding us of their important work.

Thank you for the information. Very interesting. I have heard Peter, Paul, and Mary but have never heard of Aaron Copland. I will have to look up some of his work.
