NEC Symphony Loebel

As part of NEC’s Music: Truth to Power festival, David Loebel, Associate Director of Orchestras, conducts Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 “Eroica” and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Joseph Schwantner‘s New Morning for the World, based on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick will read the text in this performance.

Composed in 1982, New Morning for the World was given its premiere by the Eastman Philharmonia in January 1983 in Rochester, New York, and immediately following that at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Since then, it has taken its place alongside another famed work for orchestra and narrator—Aaron Copland’s A Lincoln Portrait of 1942—as the musical centerpiece of choice for many official American celebrations and, of course, especially for the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. For New England Conservatory, there is an additional layer of resonance: Coretta Scott King ’54, ’71 hon. D.M. met her future husband while a student at NEC.
