The 76th Season of Concerts 2017–2018
Harlem Symphony Orchestra

January 7 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court

Amadi Azikiwe, conductor

Created in 2004, the Harlem Symphony Orchestra is a fully professional ensemble. Its mission is to highlight the historic visibility and contributions of African American orchestral instrumentalists by performing symphony concerts in Harlem’s historic Aaron Davis Hall.

It also aims to provide positive role models, to encourage youths of all ethnic origins to pursue careers in the field of classical music, and to tour underserved minority and inner city communities nationwide and internationally. The orchestra's members are professional African Americans, all of whom are graduates of the nation's top conservatories and music schools, such as The Julliard School, New England Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, Eastman School of Music, and Indiana University.

This program will include music by Jessie Montgomery, Jame Lee III, and Mozart
