IN THE NEW WORLD
Inspired by Antonin Dvorak’s instance at creating an American symphonic idiom, his Symphony No. 9 (From the New World) is paired with two amazing American works. Symphoria performs Adolfus Hailstork’s An American Fanfare in celebration of the composer’s 80th birthday and Erich Korngold’s cinematic Violin Concerto rounds out the evening.
