Civic at South Shore Cultural Center: New World Perspectives


Antonín Dvořák’s New World Symphony has captivated generations of listeners with its majestic fanfare and yearning themes. Written during the Czech composer’s first sojourn in New York City, the piece draws on his impressions of spirituals and folk melodies, creating a unique musical vision of America. William Dawson — a Civic trombonist from 1927-1930 — evokes his own heritage and point of view in the emotionally rich and masterly crafted Negro Folk Symphony, composed in 1934 in Chicago.

Please note: this event takes place at South Shore Cultural Center, 7059 S. South Shore Dr. Metered parking is available on the premises.

Tickets are free, reservations are required.
