Pre-concert lecture at 7:15 PM in the lower lobby.

In its final concert of the 2017-18 season, The University Symphony Orchestra performs the music of America, and honors the legacy and memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death in April of 1968. Dr. King’s powerful and inspiring words are woven into the brilliant and eloquent music of Joseph Schwantner’s New Morning for the World (Daybreak of Freedom). Considered one of the greatest symphonic creations of American Music, the Third Symphony by Pulitzer Prize recipient Aaron Copland includes the stirring Fanfare for the Common Man, which was written in 1942 following then Vice President Henry Wallace’s famous speech which proclaimed the dawning of the "Century of the Common Man.” The concert opens with the celebratory and energetic Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, composed 50 years later, in 1992, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Joan Tower.

PROGRAM: Joan Tower- Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman; Joseph Schwanter- New Morning for the World (Daybreak of Freedom); Aaron Copland-Symphony No. 3
