We will be in the room until 7:00/7:15 and the concert starts at 7:30pm.

Registration is required to ensure you receive a ticket. 

Concert 3: Dvořák Discovery

Celebrate 100 years of exceptional music in Fort Collins with Dvořák’s beloved Symphony No. 9, “From the New World” and Violin Concerto.

Then & Now: SC3 Dvorak Discovery

Antonín Dvořák – Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”
Antonín Dvořák – Violin Concerto, with violinist Yumi Hwang-Williams
Florence Price – Ethiopia’s Shadow in America

Discover the roots of American classical music with “Dvořák Discovery.” Dvorak’s beloved 9th Symphony, “From the New World” is full of uplifting melodies and beautiful harmonies. Because of its unique structure and influences from American folk music, it is considered one of the most important American symphonies.

Then, violinist and Colorado Symphony Concertmaster Yumi Hwang-Williams will take you on an exhilarating journey with Dvořák’s Violin Concerto.

Finally, experience this rare opportunity to hear Florence Price’s Ethiopia’s Shadow in America. Her pivotal work traces the journey of those who were enslaved and brought to the United States. It is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

Don’t miss this chance to discover the sounds of America with your Fort Collins Symphony.
