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

The Campus Symphony Orchestra presents a program of popular orchestral works. The program features Antonin Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 "From the New World,” which describes Dvořák 's new life in America. Evoking Native-American chant, work-songs, spirituals, and Czech folk music, it is one of the most tuneful and ear-catching symphonies in the repertoire. Aaron Copland's “Buckaroo Holiday" from the ballet Rodeo opens the program with upbeat rhythms and old cowboy songs. Samuel Barber's lesser-known First Essay follows, combining pensive reflections with urban agitation.

The Campus Philharmonia Orchestra presents a colorful program inspired in dances. The journey starts with the Bohemian rhythms of Smetana’s Three Dances from The Bartered Bride: The “Polka”, the “Furiant” and the “Dance of the Comedians.” The next piece on the program is Gabriel Faure’s elegant and processional, Pavane. The “Waltz of the Flowers” from the popular and celebrated Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky continues the program, which ends with the Russian folk flavor of the “Polovtsian Dances” from Prince Igor by Alexander Borodin.
