                To bring the concert closer to home, the OFO will present Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” one of the great Romantic era masterpieces of the orchestral repertory written while the Czech composer was working in the United States in the 1890s. It was Dvorak’s tribute to the nation, and includes the beloved melody to the song “Going Home.”
