One City, One Symphony: Freedom

Presented by Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at Music Hall, Cincinnati OH

Nov 13 - 14 2015
One City, One Symphony: Freedom

This year’s One City, One Symphony program centers on the theme of freedom, featuring a new CSO commission of three short works that set Dr. Maya Angelou’s poetry to music.

A particularly befitting tribute to this warrior for peace, justice and love on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment. The weekend’s finale is Dvořák’s New World Symphony, one of the most beloved symphonies of all time, with nods toward folk songs and spirituals, and the wide open spaces of the American landscape.

The CSO’s One City, One Symphony project brings the entire community together by connecting music to themes relevant in our everyday lives. Details, listening parties and related events to be announced.
