Baltimore Sun: Bringing 'The City' back to life

The Baltimore Sun's music critic Tim Smith heralded the P-CE's live performance of Aaron Copland's score alongside the 1939 World's Fair film documentary The City.

Smith notes:
That's still not all. After the presentation, the audience will get to step, you might say, directly into the film itself. The movie's last sequence, promoting a new kind of model city built from scratch, includes footage of one such place - Greenbelt, which this year celebrates the 70th anniversary of its creation under the guidance of the Resettlement Administration during the era of the New Deal. After the screening of The City, there will be a field trip by bus to Greenbelt for a panel discussion and dessert reception.
