From the New World

When and Where

February 26, 2023 3:00 pm

Gideon Ives Auditorium

In this concert, Minnesota composer Shelley Hanson paints a sonic portrait of a walk through time and space, with her piece dedicated to the people of New York City, Groove. After we hear Ruth Conry, winner of this year’s MNSOTA Mary West Solo Competition, we’ll experience America through the eyes of Antonín Dvoràk, who was so impressed with the sights and sounds that touched him in his travels across our land through his Ninth Symphony, From the New World.
