Octavio Mas-Arocas, Conductor
Jennifer Stevens, Soprano
Alaric Coussons, Guest Composer
Celebrate three eras that defined Northeast Wisconsin. Oneida/Lakota soprano Jennifer Stevens will premiere three short works of art music written in the native language, and arranged for orchestra by award-winning local composer Alaric Coussons in honor of Native American Heritage Month. Then, 150 years of French exploration and settlement will be celebrated with music from French composer Georges Bizet. Finally, what better way to honor the great European migration of the 19th century than with Dvorak’s New World Symphony?
