In this gala concert by the newly named orchestra, soprano Leslie Fagan joins #WePlayOn for Christos Hatzis’ Four Songs on Poems by Elizabeth Bishop. The opening song, I Am In Need of Music, beautifully expresses the ensemble’s innate desire to connect through music. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, titled “From the New World,” symbolizes a new beginning for the group, just as it reflected Dvořák’s new perspectives from his time in America.
