Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” blends the traditional folk sounds of the composer’s Czech homeland with melodies he discovered in African-American and Native American music while traveling the United States.

The DSO also performs the world premiere of James Lee III’s Amer’ican, a new work meant to complement and challenge Dvořák’s ideas about the “New World; as well as Gabriel Kahane’s emergency shelter intake form, a stark musical investigation of homelessness in America.

The combination of vivid songwriting, glistening orchestration and fiery social consciousness ... stands as a high point in Kahane's songbook. ”
