BOULDER, Colo. Jan. 4, 2023 — Music fans who enjoy live performances can join the musicians of the Boulder Symphony for a brilliant concert at the Dairy Arts Center, 2590 Walnut Street in downtown Boulder, on January 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Boulder Symphony will perform Antonín Dvořák’s 9th Symphony, named “From the New World” because it “was the first production of a new work, by one of the greatest composers, written in America, embodying the sentiment and romance derived from a residence in America and a study of its native tone-expressions.” [1]

Portions of the symphony are said to be inspired by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s epic poem, The Song of Hiawatha. So in addition to Dvořák’s 9th, Boulder Symphony will perform The Song of Hiawatha Overture by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, a Black 19th century composer.

Boulder Symphony is also excited to perform a world premiere by John Clay Allen—his Oboe Concerto—featuring Boulder Symphony’s principal oboist Ingrid Anderson, and John Williams’ themes from Jurassic Park. This concert will be sure to take you on a musical journey!

To attend this brilliant and exciting program, you can purchase tickets here. And be sure to visit and follow Boulder Symphony & Music Academy on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube @BoulderSymphony for more information and to register for private music lessons!
