Several years ago my wife and I attended the annual music festival in Santa Cruz. The year we attended our older daughter, Jacqueline, a flautist, was playing in the festival. The year we attended the festival was dedicated to the music of Aaron Copland.
As part of the festival program, Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" was played in the town square. My wife and I arrived in time to obtain seating on one of the benches facing the bandstand. As we seated ourselves, we noted Copland seating himself along with the crowd. I don't know if anyone recognized the man. He was the common man. Not until the fanfare was completed had someone recognized Aaron and urged to stand and take a bow.
