Samuel Coleridge Taylor...HIAWATHA'S WEDDING FEAST
The American Prize-winning soloist to be announced

Dvorak...NEW WORLD SYMPHONY

HIAWATHA in CHICAGO: Wednesday, November 8, 2017. Join The Chicago Bar Association Symphony Orchestra and the CBA Chorus, Chicagoland's unique musical ensemble of attorneys, judges and legal professionals, for a very special revival of Anglo-African composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's once world-famous cantata, HIAWATHA'S WEDDING FEAST, returning to Chicago on November 8, 2017 at St James Episcopal Cathedral, conducted by Maestro David Katz.

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was black...his mother was English, his father from Sierra Leone...the first classical composer of African descent to be recognized internationally for his music.

Coleridge-Taylor achieved fame overnight with the premiere of "Hiawatha's Wedding Feast", his setting of lines from Longfellow's epic poem, "The Song of Hiawatha", which premiered at the Royal College of Music in November 1898, when the composer was just 22 years old. "Hiawatha" proved a sensation, was soon performed hundreds of times, selling hundreds of thousands of copies across the globe.

The concert will also feature Dvorak's beloved NEW WORLD SYMPHONY.
