Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

From the New World

The MYS Symphony Orchestra will feature Antonin Dvorak’s New World Symphony. This orchestral masterpiece, reflective of both Old and New World styles and themes, was created by Bohemian composer Antonín Dvořák while he lived in New York City in the early 1890s. As one of the first classical compositions to draw inspiration from New World music and lore, this piece was purportedly inspired by Dvorak’s reflections on American South spirituals and Native American traditions while incorporating stylistic elements of Old World sources.

Heading into its fifth year, The Authentic Voice commissioning series will feature a collaborative Dance Suite by young composers Skye Neal, Amir Avsker, Aidan Bagby, Adrian Valenzuela, and Kate Andrews. In partnership with Fear No Music’s Young Composers Project, this program empowers young composers to write fully orchestrated symphonic compositions to be performed by MYS musicians.

Concert Orchestra will also perform.
