This season finale closes our concert cycle by featuring a well-known staple of the orchestral repertoire: Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”. Perhaps best known for the beautiful and longing melody of the second movement, the entire work is a roller-coaster of drama, color, and intensity. Rounding out this program is the final movement, “Summer”, of the four-part work by Jacob Tews, and a new commission by HRP harpist and composer, Mel Lauf.
