The New York Philharmonic, which helped inaugurate Zoellner Arts Center in 1997, and marked its 10th anniversary, returns for a third performance in Baker Hall to commemorate our 25th anniversary. Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducts the orchestra in a concert that blends the impressionistic delicacy of Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun with the Romantic virtuosity of Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, with Bomsori Kim as soloist. The rediscovered Symphony No. 4 by Florence Price completes the program. Price was a pioneering composer in the 1930s. She was the first woman of African American descent to receive national recognition as a symphonic composer and have her music performed by a major American orchestra during that period.
