Krissy Blunck, a graduate student completing her master of music degree in orchestral conducting, will lead the orchestra in a performance of Nikola Ovanin's "Hatikvah Overture," which is based on Hebrew melodies.

The concert will conclude with a performance of Dvorak's Symphony #9 "From the New World," which was completed in Iowa during the years Dvorak lived in the United States.

“‘From the New World’ features Afro-American and Native American folk melodies and styles throughout the piece,” said Víquez. “This is a work that USD students have always wanted to perform, and I am very excited that we are able to perform it this year.”

The event will be livestreamed via the University of South Dakota Symphony Orchestra Facebook page
