Historic Premieres Highlighting Women and Civil Rights

ROBYNNE REDMON, mezzo-soprano
Thomas Sleeper, conductor

The Frost Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor and composer Thomas Sleeper, celebrates historic and new premieres performed for the very first time at the University of Miami. William Schuman’s epic New England Triptych, premiered 60 years ago by the UM Symphony under the baton of Andre Kostelanetz, is performed alongside two new orchestral premieres: James Stephenson’s there are no words, a musical response to the violence perpetrated against nine members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, 2015; and Richard Moriarty’s song cycle on the Civil War, We That Wait, celebrating women and featuring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Robynne Redmon.
