The 120-member Gateways Music Festival Orchestra, whose distinguished players hail from the nation’s foremost orchestras and conservatory faculties, is renowned for its bold sound, exciting interpretations and artistic excellence. Performing old and new classics, the Gateways Orchestra takes special pride in performing works by composers of African descent, both past and present.
This concert features Brahms’ Variations on a Theme by Haydn, Florence Price’s Third Symphony and Sinfonia No. 3 by George Walker–the first African-American Pulitzer Prize for Music laureate and whose centennial falls in 2022. The concert concludes with James V. Cockerham’s Fantasia on Lift Every Voice and Sing, a signature piece for the Gateways Orchestra.
