Vallejo Symphony Concert III - New World
Saturday, April 18, 2020@8pm. Sunday, April 19, 2020@3pm. Marc Taddei, conductor. Ives Symphony No. 3 (Winner f the 1947 Pulitzer Prize), Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, Op. 31, Zhengyi Bai, tenor, Meredith Brown, horn, Dvorák Symphony No. 9. Our closing concert features the most famous symphony ever written— Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” composed in the U.S. and inspired by African-American folk traditions. American maverick Charles Ives wrote his Symphony No. 3 just 15 years later, but it was not premiered until 1947, when it won the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Last, it is a great pleasure to welcome one of our orchestra’s own, Principal Horn Meredith Brown, to join Adler Fellow Zhengyi Bai in one of the great song cycles of the 20th century: Benjamin Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings.
