Coleman New Song Cycle (New York premiere)
Barber Knoxville: Summer of 1915 
Price Symphony No. 1 

Hear powerful works by four unique American composers. Metropolitan Opera star Angel Blue’s lush voice is ideally suited to the richly melodic vocal line of Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, a gorgeous setting of novelist James Agee’s childhood memories of a summer evening in the American South. Blue also joins the orchestra for the New York premiere of a new work by Valerie Coleman, as well as a suite from Matthew Aucoin's latest opera, which was premiered this season. Arkansas-born Price’s vibrant symphony recalls her African heritage, weaving in spirituals, hymns, and West African dance.
