Celebrate America with the New Orchestra of Washington! Dvorak’s string quartet, “American,” performed by NOW’s Resident String Quartet, Aeolus, opens the program. Gershwin’s iconic Porgy and Bess Fantasy gets a modern twist in Iain Farrington’s arrangement of the work for chamber orchestra. The program ends with Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World.”
