While living in New York, Czech composer Antonin Dvorák became interested in Native American music and African-American spirituals. His Symphony No. 9 – From the New World, is a thrilling and poignant synthesis of American folk and indigenous melodies woven into the traditional Western symphonic structure, and is one of the most popular masterworks in the orchestral repertoire. The concert will also introduce the audience to Joan Tower’s Grammy® Award-winning composition Made in America, which weaves America the Beautiful into an intriguing and haunting tone poem. And in a nod do the “old world”, Symphony Concertmaster David Hays will perform Beethoven’s delightful and charming Violin Concerto.
