American Vistas is inspired by visions of America and American music. The program, conducted by Music Director Barbara Yahr, includes the New York premiere of “Address for the 50th Anniversary of the Selma March – Eulogy for Reverent Clementa C. Pinckney” from Paul Frucht’s A More Perfect Union, a song cycle for baritone and orchestra based on the speeches of President Obama, featuring Metropolitan Opera Young Artist baritone Daniel Rich. The program opens with Missy Mazzoli’s These Worlds in Us (2006), dedicated to her father, who fought in the Vietnam war, followed by Barber’s Adagio for Strings, and concludes with Dvorak’s Symphony No 9, “From the New World”.
