UMass Boston Chamber Orchestra Spring Concert: A Cadence of Peace
UMass Boston Performing Arts presents the UMass Boston Chamber Orchestra's spring performance: A Cadence of Peace
Beethoven: Egmont Overture
Still: Afro-American Symphony
Márquez: Danzón No. 2
UMass Boston Chamber Orchestra's spring concert honors the diversity that defines our urban campus and the community of the Chamber Orchestra and pays homage to composer’s who represent minority and/or marginalized voices. Led by Sommer Forrester, Conductor, offers a response to the systematic and ongoing social injustice through a peaceful and hopeful voice of resistance and unity.
The program features works by William Grant Still, an African American composer; Arturo Márquez, a Mexican composer; and Ludwig van Beethoven. Still and Márquez represent minority and marginalized populations. Beethoven represents the classical Western canon, however, his Egmont Overture was conceived as a response to political oppression.
