This season, the New York Philharmonic, in celebration of its 175th Anniversary, has invited ALBA Consort to participate in its "New World Initiative" and explore interpretations of Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, "From the New World." In "Treasure Laden," ALBA weaves its dynamic repertoire with iconic themes from Dvorak's 9th symphony in a performance of the Ancient and Brave New World.
