The Dvorak American Heritage Association (DAHA) commemorates, celebrates, and continues to explore composer Antonin Dvorak's extraordinary musical contributions, with a special emphasis on his influential residency in the United States in the years 1892-95. From its home in the beautifully restored Bohemian National Hall in New York City, DAHA offers concerts, lectures, and educational programs. At the heart of these activities is the Dvorak Room, a newly-created exhibition and library space with adjacent performance venues, that will inspire present and future generations by preserving the composer's American legacy.
