What's Interesting

James Conlon, May Festival Music Director Laureate, returns with works by three composers who touch on universal themes of cultural identity and our shared humanity. Dawson, a pioneering composer in his time, expresses the Black American experience while Beethoven's and Bernstein’s works illustrate the conflicts between cultures thrown together through circumstance.
