Dvořák Symphony No.9 From the New World

About this performance

MSO Chief Conductor Jaime Martín leads community musicians alongside members of the MSO in a performance of one of classical music's most popular works – Dvořák's New World Symphony.

Dvořák wrote his Ninth Symphony as a fresh arrival in New York, having just started as Director of the newly-formed National Conservatory of Music. Inspired by the soul of African American spirituals, Dvořák aimed to embody its character in orchestral form.

Maestro Jaime Martín’s position as MSO Chief Conductor is supported by Dr Marc Besen AC and the late Dr Eva Besen AO.
