Songs of a New World

Sat, June 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Free

Join the Quincy-based Schiller Boston Community Chorus and guest soloists for an afternoon of choral and vocal music.   We are celebrating the real roots of American Classical culture and music by performing music of Antonin Dvorak, Harry Burleigh, Hall Johnson, Johannes Brahms, and more.

The great Czech composer, Dvorak (upon arriving in America in 1892) said: “In the ‘Spirituals’ of America, I discover all that is needed for a great and noble school of music.  They are pathetic, tender, passionate, melancholy, solemn, religious, bold.  The American musician understands these tunes and they move sentiment in him.”
