APPALACHIAN SPRING! a message from Kate Steinbeck and Pan Harmonia

Dear music lovers,

Welcome to 3rd Thursday Music – our second offering!

This month we revisit a performance of Aaron Copland’s beautiful Appalachian Spring in its original setting for 13 players. This SRO concert took place at the Masonic Temple in Asheville on May 19, 2013. Were you there? LISTEN + ENJOY

As we move through this time of stillness and strive to befriend uncertainty, guitarist Amy Brucksch writes:

“Teaching and interacting with my middle and high school students has been a lifeline for me these past few months and has helped ease the loss of performing for live audiences. Teaching music and guitar online has been challenging and time-consuming but has provided me with the opportunity to learn many new skills and stretch my boundaries. Some students who struggled in the traditional classroom have thrived in the online environment, surpassing their expectations. Many have shared their anxieties, frustrations, hopes and dreams. Our music activities have served as a creative and therapeutic outlet, which reaffirms my belief in the healing power of the arts.”

If you are interested in studying an instrument, let us know. We are all teaching artists and can help make it happen!


This article from the Boston Globe explains what self-employed artists everywhere are currently facing: For musicians, unemployment coverage is out of step. So far, one of our artists has received a PPP Grant (Payroll Protection Program); others are still waiting


We are grateful beyond words for your generosity. Your investment in our music this Spring has made a huge difference – funding 46% of our musicians’ lost income. If you haven’t yet donated and would like to, here’s how.


Thank you for reading this and for your continued interest in our music.


Be safe and stay healthy! We are all in this together.

With love,

Kate Steinbeck

Flutist / Artistic Director

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
