Composers Concordance Chamber Orchestra (CCCO), Lara St. John - violin, Valerie Coleman - flute, Thomas Carlo Bo - conductor

In 1893, legendary Czech composer Antonín Dvořák spoke in NYC of the influence of Native American and African American music on his Symfonie. He urged American composers to focus attention on what "must" be the foundation for "the future music of this country." The concert program is entitled 'Legends', recalling the timeless melodies of Dvořák himself, and examining the influence of Native American and African American music on contemporary orchestral composition. Conducted by Thomas Carlo Bo, this debut performance of CCCO features violinist Lara St. John and flutist Valerie Coleman (of Imani Winds) as soloists. Moreover, each member of this orchestra is a true champion of contemporary music, including bass trombonist Dave Taylor, pianist Taka Kigawa, percussionist Peter Jarvis, violinist Lynn Bechtold, and oboist Keve Wilson, among others. Don't miss this event, to include the distinctive compositions of Valerie Coleman, Dan Cooper, Patrick Hardish (Founding Director), Otto Luening ('Potawatomi Legends'), Milica Paranosic, Joseph Pehrson (Founding Director), Gene Pritsker, and Dave Soldier. http://www.oslmusic.org/dimenna-center-welcome
