Antonín Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony was profoundly influenced by the music of the old plantations, which he learned from Henry T. Burleigh, his student from Erie, Pennsylvania. Dvořák’s great Symphony is complemented by a work commissioned from acclaimed jazz bassist and composer John Clayton, which he said represents “a continuum of Dvořák’s compositional influence by African-American music” — “The New World Revisited.”

Local Cleveland artists Orlando Watson (spoken word), Dominick Farinacci (trumpet) and Detrich Burgess (vocals) will be featured.

If you are planning to attend the Thursday, March 12 performance at the Maltz Center please make an online reservation.
