Capital City Symphony – Elegy
We open our season – Who Are We, D.C.? – with Carlos Simon’s Elegy, A Cry from the Grave “dedicated to those who have been murdered wrongfully by an oppressive power,” followed by his piece This Land, lifting hope and unity. Howard University alum, Adolphus Hailstork’s Sonata da Chiesa follows and we close the program with Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges’ charming Symphony No. 2.
