Pre-Season Orchestra Concert: Symphonic Roots
Saturday, Sep 22, 2018 at 7:30 PM - English
Get a good look at all the 2018-19 Fellows in their debut orchestra concert of the season! Florence Price shattered barriers as the first African-American woman to have a symphony performed by a major orchestra. Her Third Symphony, commissioned during the Great Depression, is a splendid blend of influences blooming from her Southern roots. Jean Sibelius, Finland’s national treasure, crafted a “confession of the soul” in his extremely popular Second Symphony, a dynamic balance of majesty and mystery. Joshua Weilerstein makes his NWS debut as 42 fresh faces (over half the orchestra!) converge with seasoned veterans to bring you the “new” New World Symphony.
