Post Concert Question Time- Starts 15 mins after the concert ends in the Music Room, with Sir Andrew Davis and American Emily Birsan.

Who doesn’t love Dvořák’s New World symphony? With its epic drama, aching nostalgia and unforgettable tunes (just don’t mention the Hovis advert), it’s been a hit everywhere it’s been played for over a century: the ultimate musical letter from America. To launch a series of concerts of music inspired by the USA, Sir Andrew Davis and soprano Emily Birsan make it the grand finale to a night of all-American fireworks – show tunes by Gershwin and Bernstein, the off-the-wall genius of Charles Ives, and of course, the piece that says it all: The Stars and Stripes Forever!
