Deeply rooted in American orchestral music is a sense of triumph over adversity. DuBois’ exploration of We Shall Overcome embodies that powerful and unifying sentiment. Followed by Herbert’s inspirational Cello Concerto No. 2, witness the dawn of American symphonic music with Dvořák’s New World Symphony, a uniquely American masterwork inspired by Native and Black melodies.
