MIKLÓS RÓZSA The Mayflower from the film score to Plymouth Adventure
TONYA WIND SINGER Wampanoag Stories for All Time
ALEX BERKO Mayflower
DVOŘÁK Symphony No.9, From the New World
This concert has been cancelled due to restrictions on large-scale gatherings. We hope to share this music at a future date, perhaps in season 2021-2022.
Brand new music commissioned for this special year sheds light and appreciation on these two worlds of 1620 that influence us today. Tonya Wind Singer’s orchestral tone poem, narrated by historian and storyteller, Jonathan James Perry, is inspired by legends of the Wampanoag Tribe, the People of the First Light. Composer Alex Berko musically colors early settlers’ intentions drawn from the origins of The Mayflower Compact, the document of self-governance that became the seeds of American democracy. The Mayflower from the film score to Plymouth Adventure and Dvorak’s symphony, From the New World, wrap this program in appreciation for what is good and pure in the common pursuit of happiness. The music is rich with emotion and hope, transcending time and place to feel as important to those living now as it was to its earliest audiences.
