Programming

Following along a symphonic poem of a young nobleman, Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 starts with the soft sounds of nature and ending with ominous funeral march. John Williams’ iconic Jurassic Park Theme accentuates the brilliant melody to befit the momentous dinosaur giants. Centering around long-established call and response, Valerie Coleman’s wrote Umoja to commemorate unity for the world.
