Las Vegas Philharmonic Presents Music Unwound
Continuing their celebratory 20th Anniversary Season, the Las Vegas Philharmonic will present Music Unwound: Dvo?ák in America on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 7:30 pm at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. The program explores Czech composer Antonín Dvo?ák and his time spent in New York in the late 1800s while directing the National Conservatory of Music of America. The concert represents the second year of the Las Vegas Philharmonic's participation in Music Unwound, a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)-funded consortium of orchestras and universities dedicated to curating America's musical past. Music Unwound was conceived and is curated by author and music scholar, Joseph Horowitz. The robust evening of music includes Dvo?ák's Scherzo Capriccioso, Opus 66 and Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, Opus 95 "From the New World." Following the Dvo?ák selections, the orchestra will perform the final two movements from The Hiawatha Melodrama, which combines text by Longfellow with music by Dvo?ák and will be accompanied by a visual presentation and narration by internationally renowned vocalist Kevin Deas.
Lobby doors open at 6:00 pm and patrons are invited to attend the pre-concert recital, "Harry Burleigh and Dvo?ák," hosted by Kevin Deas and Joseph Horowitz beginning at 6:30 pm.
This concert will be the pinnacle of a week-long series of recitals, discussions and performances in collaboration with University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). Throughout the week of events, both the Las Vegas Philharmonic and the UNLV orchestra will present concerts with scripted and visual accompaniment.
