When Dvorak traveled from Prague to New York City his music was greatly inspired by the journey from central Europe to the New World. Our own expedition of the New World begins with compositions influenced by Dvorak’s work – Morawetz’s “Carnival Overture” and Copland’s Old American Songs featuring baritone Michael Nyby, before tracing their roots back to the titular Symphony.
The Evening’s Program:
Morawetz – Carnival Overture
Copland – Old American Songs
Dvorak – Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”
Venue: Showplace Conductor: Michael Newnham Guest Artists: Kawartha Youth Orchestra
Children and adults alike will delight in excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s beloved and timeless Nutcracker. Hockey fans will love our musical version of the more modern classic, The Hockey Sweater (Le chandail de hockey), a story by Roch Carrier. There will be seasonal favourites, a carol sing, and the Kawartha Youth Orchestra joins us to help get everyone into the spirit of the season.
