    Presented in collaboration with UWM. For one evening only, the Chicago Symphony's engaging Beyond the Score® program comes to town. Designed for classical music aficionados and newcomers alike, the first portion of the program offers a multimedia examination of Dvorák Symphony No. 9—its context in history, how it relates to Dvorák other works and the events in the composer's life that shaped its creation. Learn how this symphony grew out of Dvorák's abandoned opera, based on Longfellow's Hiawatha epic. Plus, examine how this popular Symphony draws on Czech, American, African American and Native American musical themes to create a culturally complex and stirring masterpiece. Finally, experience the famed "New World" symphony performed live by our musicians, conducted by Edo de Waart.
