We continue to celebrate new beginnings with a commissioned piece by composer James Lee, III. His Hold On, America, Hold On! tells just some of the stories of the adversity suffered by our brothers and sisters of color—from 1921's Tulsa Race Massacre to events happening today—and begs an answer to the question: Where do we go from here as we look forward to a more peaceful and loving world? The second half features Dvorak's Symphony for the New World. A musical postcard of his experiences in America, Dvorak's final symphony pays tribute to African American and Native American melodies.
