Dawson

Negro Folk Symphony
 
DSSO Chorus 
Featuring works by Handel,
Wagner, Verdi, Orff & others
 
Join us for a night bursting with song! The concert opens with the Negro Folk Symphony, composed by William Dawson in 1934. Dawson creates a work that is reminiscent of Dvorák’s New World Symphony, using traditional spirituals being sung across the instruments in the orchestra. Then, be spellbound by our Symphony Chorus as we perform an array of choral showstoppers including Orff’s dramatic O Fortuna and Handel’s timeless Hallelujah chorus.
