This concert will feature.
Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, also known as “From the New World,” is one of his most famous and beloved compositions. Written in 1893 during his time in the United States, the symphony captures Dvořák’s impressions and reflections on American culture and landscapes. The symphony is in four movements: Adagio – Allegro molto, Largo, Scherzo: Molto vivace, Allegro con fuoco. The symphony’s melodic richness, emotional depth, and fusion of different cultural elements have contributed to its enduring popularity and status as one of the great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire.
Chopin: Allegro vivace from Piano Concerto No.2 will feature the 2023 Young Artists Competition winner, Chloe Park. The Allegro vivace is the first movement of Frédéric Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21. Written when Chopin was in his late teens, this movement is characterized by its youthful exuberance and virtuosic piano writing. The Allegro vivace captures a sense of youthful enthusiasm and emotional intensity, making it a compelling opening to Chopin’s second piano concerto. The movement’s interplay between the piano and orchestra, combined with its memorable melodies and pianistic brilliance, contributes to its lasting appeal among performers and audiences alike.
The No Name Quartet will take the stage with the Symphony providing wonderful gospel music sung in intricate four-part harmony. Tim Yocum, Bob Jackson, Mike Yocum, Jeff Secaur.
