LSO Concert – Dvořák in America – Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 7:30pm

Please join the Livingston Symphony Orchestra for our third concert of the 2021-2022 season, featuring works related to the great Czech Composer, Antonín Dvořák. In 1892, the composer famously came to America, landing in Hoboken NJ, to take the director position at the National Conservatory of Music of America in New York City. During this time he was exposed to American music, and also composers at the school, such as Horatio Parker. During this time, he wrote his most successful works, before returning to Bohemia in 1895.

This concert will feature the Tragic Overture by Johannes Brahms, one of Dvořák’s biggest supporters, as well as A Northern Ballad (Op.46) by Horatio Parker, who attended the Conservatory. It will conclude with arguably Dvořák’s most famous piece, Symphony No. 9, From the New World.

The concert will be held at the Livingston High School Auditorium, 30 Robert Harp Dr, Livingston NJ. We hope you can join us!
