Girl Power!

Can you guess this piece? Here's a hint: rare bird...

This composer is a highly celebrated composer, conductor, and pianist! The title of this piece is not the composer’s only reference to the music of Aaron Copland, but also uses the same instrumentation as Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, and quotes some of Copland’s music too. The composer’s first manifestation of this fanfare was performed while serving as the composer-in-residence for the Saint Louis Symphony.
