ENSEMBLE DU MONDE: THE PEOPLE COULD FLY
On Saturday, February 8, 2014, 7:30 PM, Ensemble du Monde makes their DiMenna Center for Classical Music debut celebrating Black History Month and the extraordinary accomplishments of people of color in classical music.

The Ensemble and Music Director, Marlon Daniel, will perform works by composers of African descent from the time of Mozart till today highlighted by the NEW YORK PREMIERE of Trevor Weston's evocative work for violin, narrator and chamber orchestra, THE PEOPLE COULD FLY, based on the moving African American folk tale of slaves who possessed magic that enabled them to literally fly away to freedom  (some believed a metaphor for the underground railroad).

Dynamic young violinist Josh Henderson, who performed the world premiere of the work at the Kennedy Center, and the incomparable Chapman Roberts, of Broadway fame, creator of Black Stars of the Great White Way, highlight this performance.
