Music Director and Conductor:
Gregory Vajda

DvořákFive Bagatelles
DvořákDumka and Furianty
MilhaudLa création du monde

In the beautiful ballroom of the historic Cooper House, Gregory and the musicians of the HSO continue last season’s adventurous interplay words and music. Selected readings by great Alabama authors will be interpolated with folklike chamber selections by Dvořák and with Milhaud’s La Création du monde, a sensuous work informed by the Harlem jazz Milhaud heard during his 1922 visit to the Big Apple. The presentation is loosely modeled after classic radio drama of the mid-twentieth century, a genre some senior patrons may remember from their youths and a continuing inspiration for today’s cutting-edge podcasting.
