Explore the beauty and depth of expression in music for string orchestra. The joyful Serenade for Strings echoes the happiness Dvořák was enjoying as a newlywed and new father. Enjoy the high-energy rhythms of Kilar’s nature-inspired Orawa and a jaunty work by Jennifer Higdon (recently named one of the top-35 female composers of all time by The Washington Post)—plus, hear the world premiere of a new concerto by composer and longtime NCS musician Terry Mizesko.
