NAU’s symphony orchestras will perform Czech composer Antonín Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8, beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24, in Ardrey Memorial Auditorium.
Known as his “happy” symphony, this piece borrows heavily from Dvorak’s favorite music—Bohemian folk melodies.
“It is rich, romantic and cheerful, all at the same time,” said Daniel O’Bryant, director of orchestras. “Although performed less frequently than his 9th Symphony, the 8th is considered by many to be his greatest work.”
Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for seniors. NAU students, faculty and staff with an ID and children ages 17 and younger are free.
For tickets to all events, call (928) 523-5661, toll free (888) 520-7214, or purchase online at nau.edu/cto.
