The Market Place Theatre - Armagh

Baiba Skride Violin

Ives The Unanswered Question
Bernstein Serenade (after Plato's Symposium)
Dvořák Symphony No.9 From the New World. 

Elements of Native and African American traditional music made their way into Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony, ‘From The New World’ – despite the fact that, for us, it’s most widely recognised as the soundtrack to that most quintessentially English advert for Hovis! Bernstein, on the other hand, believed that American music should be eclectic – as you would expect from a composer who wrote jazz for the concert hall and symphonic music for Broadway. His Serenade conveys a range of moods and is said to be a portrait of the composer himself.
Join world-renowned star violinist Baiba Skride and the Ulster Orchestra for a magical and memorable evening!

£17.50 / £15.00 / £5.00 (under 18s)
