DVOŘÁK Cello Concerto in B minor
The Phil honors the Plymouth 400 Anniversary with a visual, vocal, orchestral and spiritual celebration! Award-winning cellist Zlatomir Fung joins the orchestra for Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, a New World Concerto of sorts because Dvořák composed it here in America. Choruses from Pembroke, Plymouth North and Silver Lake Regional High Schools lend their voices to Copland’s Simple Gifts and The Promise of Living, selections that exemplify hope and gratitude. Wampanoag leader, historian and artist, Jonathan James-Perry stirs Native People’s ancestral heritage with First Light, a reference to the Wampanoag, or People of the Light, by Tonya Wind Singer. The lives of early settlers come into focus through archival photos from Pilgrim Hall Museum set to musical touchstones: Copland's music from the film, Our Town, and Miklós Rózsa's The Mayflower from the film score to the 1952 film Plymouth Adventure. We honor the many who have walked this place before us.
