The York Symphony Orchestra takes you on a melodic voyage with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved A Little Night Music (Eine kleine Nachtmusik). Antonin Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings merges rhythmic Czech folk music with joyous melodies and countermelodies. To commemorate the indigenous nation, Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate’s Chokfi personifies the rabbit trickster of Southeast American Indian folklore. Named after the African harp that’s showcased, William Grant Still’s Ennanga is imbued in his African heritage with charged notes and spirited harmonies. Bao Yuankai based Going to the West Gate on a Chinese folk song about the separation of two lovers, which is conveyed by melancholic contrasting rhythmic patterns.
