This is a Groupmuse Night Out

Explore the wider world of music outside Groupmuse with exclusive discounts to local concerts.

DAHA welcomes Groupmuse community members to celebrate spring and the New World Symphony in a special tribute to Antonín Dvořák and his symphonic masterpiece, marking its 130th anniversary year.

Hear an arrangement of Largo from the New World Symphony, written for cello choir, along with Song of the Birds – El Cant dels Ocells, a Catalonian Traditional, which will both be performed by a choir of cellists from the esteemed Violoncello Society of New York and Czech guest, cellist Tomáš Jamník.

A special arrangement of Dvořák’s prized Humoresque No.7 will be performed by cellist Aurelia Faidley-Solars, a talented rising star in the music world. And, the ArtsAhimsa Trio: Laura Jean Goldberg, violin; Kate Dillingham, cello; and Anna Royzman, piano will play Dvořák’s Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 90, The Dumky. Last year this piece brought the audience to their feet, cheering. We hope this year's encore performance will inspire similar excitement.

View the world premiere of A Ballet for The New World inspired by the New World Symphony and its embrace of multicultural themes. The new work explores the rich cultural heritage of the Americas incorporating dance and thematic materials from across the region North to South, with choreography by Cuban-born Pedro Ruiz and music by Venezuelan-born Moshe S. Knoll. Featuring musicians from the ArtsAhimsa ensemble and dancers Nick Camarero, Frankie Levita, Kayla Hsu, Greg Bantugan, Tade Biesinger, and Ethan Palma from Marymount Manhattan College.

Hear the recitation of Czech and Ukrainian poetry reflecting the idea of open thought and freedom in Dvořák’s work, which resonates as much with audiences today as it did in the late 19th century.

Following the Spring Musicale concert and included in ticket cost, audience members are invited to visit the Dvořák Room exhibit on the 3rd floor and the Czech Center New York exhibit on the 2nd floor. There will be a lecture presentation at the Czech Center exhibit at 5:30 p.m.

More information about DAHA, this program, the composers, the performers, and the choreographers can be found on their website.

Groupmuse ticket buyers are instructed to pick up their tickets at a table in the entrance prior to the performance. Seating for this concert is first come, first served.
