Gateway Orchestra Performs at Second Congregational

The Gateway Orchestra of the Gateway Classical Music Society will perform Sunday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m., at the Second Congregational Church, 139 E. Putnam Ave. Gateway is a participant in the New York Philharmonic’s New World Initiative in celebration of the Philharmonic’s 175th anniversary. In recognition of the New York Philharmonic’s important contribution to the world for having commissioned and premiered the Dvorak’s New World Symphony during the composer’s stay in America during the late 1800s, Gateway is including the Symphony in all its concerts for the season through the spring of 2017 to help foster the New World Initiative’s goal of having “as many interpretations of the work reach as many ears as possible.” The Gateway Orchestra, conducted by artistic and music director Ida Angland, was invited to be part of the New World Initiative because of its history of performing in New York City for over a decade. read more...
