New World, New Music is a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, From the New World. The International Chamber Orchestra of America has commissioned renowned composer and native New Yorker Bruce Adolphe and visual artists James Rouvelle and Lili Maya, known as maya + rouvelle, to create an integrative arts experience that will be premiered by the ICOA. The project underscores the values of ICOA: collaboration, cultural exchange, and innovative performance. Adolphe’s inventive homage, titled Dvorshock, will feature London Philharmonic Co-leader Kevin Lin. As one of the founding orchestra member of ICOA, Kevin Lin will return to New York for the first time since his designation at London Philharmonic.
This concert is made possible with support from the Dvořák American Heritage Association.
