Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony in Ogden
Inspired by the spiritual storytelling of Native American and African American musical traditions, Dvořák’s universally popular “New World” Symphony captures the essence of our country’s rich heritage with expressive melodies that are immediately familiar. Paired with the ebb and flow of Barber’s Violin Concerto—performed by Utah native Aubree Oliverson—and Ravel’s jazz-influenced Boléro, our season opener brings to light the power of American musical narratives and echoes the traditions of past generations.
