For the first time in its series history, Live From Lincoln Center takes its show on the road presenting The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in a broadcast from Kentucky’s historic Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill. This special broadcast event, filmed on location in May 2015, captures the unique intimacy of a chamber music concert, with cameras and equipment located inside the Meadow View Barn, a restored tobacco barn at Shaker Village amidst 3,000 acres of rolling Bluegrass countryside. The performance features musicians from the Chamber Music Society playing works by distinctive American composers, including Gottschalk and Barber, highlighted by Copland’s beloved Appalachian Spring, an iconic, enduring ballet suite about a community of 19th-century American pioneers featuring the popular “Simple Gifts” Shaker melody. This episode is directed by Habib Azar, with Elliot Caplan producing documentary segments showcasing the Chamber Music Society at Shaker Village, as well as the location’s rich history.
