Cello players on stage playing in an orchestra
Dayton Performing Arts Alliance Presents

New World Symphony

Jun 7 & Jun 8, 2024

Schuster Center

Description

DPAA honors Black Music Month by celebrating African American musical traditions. Florence Price, the first Black woman to receive national attention as a symphonic composer, blends Joplin-esque ballroom and ragtime idioms into her Dances. Dvořák’s New World Symphony embraces Black folk music, fusing it with the composer’s Bohemian heritage. On the second half of the program, a community choir joins the orchestra to recognize and recount the African American experience in song.
