Coming to America

7:00pm 7:00pm

Coming to America

We will explore the music of European-born composers who travelled to America to compose. For Erich Korngold this was a connection to a blossoming film industry and for Antonin Dvořák it was to develop nationalistic sounds in American composers. On the program are Korngold’s light-hearted Theme and Variations, Felix Mendelssohn’s symbolic Symphony No. 5 and Dvořák’s lyrical Cello Concerto in B minor.

Please attend the Concert Prelude at 6:00 pm in the Numerica Performing Arts Center theatre. The Prelude features Music Director Nikolas Caoile in an entertaining and informative talk about the works being performed.
