UCLA Philharmonia returns to live performance with a concert of celebration and renewal, featuring Lili Boulanger’s expectant and effervescent “Of a spring morning,” Mozart’s valedictory “Jupiter” Symphony, and Dawson’s searingly powerful “Negro Folk Symphony.”
“D’un matin de printemps" (“Of a spring morning”) (1917-1918)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Symphony No. 41, K. 543 (“Jupiter") (1788)
William Levi Dawson
"Negro Folk Symphony" (1934; rev. 1952)
This event is made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2021 - 22 Dobrow Series.
