Plymouth Phil Two Worlds, One Land

In a program honoring the living story of the Wampanoag Nation who live among us and upon whose land the town of Plymouth resides, the Phil presents Two Worlds, One Land — a program originally scheduled for performance earlier this year and canceled due to a late-January blizzard.

Brent Michael Davids’ Prayer and Celebration, the final two movements of his Powwow Symphony, melds spiritual and joyous elements of a powwow with the symphony orchestra. In Creation, composer Tonya Wind Singer offers a Native perspective on the connectedness to each other and all things around us. Composer Alex Berko draws from the origins of the Mayflower Compact, the document that became the seeds of American democracy, in his music for soprano, narrator and orchestra, Mayflower. This program also includes music from Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, depicting the composer’s love of nature and serving as a sonic reflection on the convergence of these two worlds and the land we all love and share.

Because of a calendar conflict with previously-scheduled guest artists, the original music, Wampanoag: Stories for All Time, will be rescheduled and performed at a later date.
