Symphonic Series: "Journey Home"
Composer and violinist Ittai Shapira, described by the NY Times as "an Israeli dynamo," invites you to hear the regional premier of his new work, Sephardic Journey, which contains themes of journey's and migrations and the need to balance tradition with adaptation to a new culture. We pair this work with Dvorak's New World Symphony, a piece written so that Americans could have their own great music.
