Dvořák’s New World Symphony
Carl St.Clair, conductor
DVOŘÁK: Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia
Doors open at 2 p.m.
Carl St.Clair uses Dvořák’s popular symphony to explore three historic links between the United States and the Czech people. First, Dvořák’s remarkable journey to the United States helped to identity a unique American voice. Some 25 years later, America played a central role in the creation of a democratic Czechoslovakia. Today, a new Orange County institution, Pangea World, explores and expands the wealth of knowledge between nations.
