Ensemble Leonarda Featured in Performance for NY Philharmonic’s New World Initiative Project Reply

Ensemble-Leonarda-concert-photoEnsemble Leonarda– an early music ensemble founded at Peabody featuring Nancy Kito (BM ’91, Organ), Susan Graham (BM ’90, Flute), Claire Smith Bermingham, and Sarah Stone- was featured by the New York Philharmonic’s New World Initiative Project in a performance with vocalist Kelly Dwyer at the National Opera Center on February 16, with the Deputy Consul General of the Czech Republic in New York, Karel Smékal, in attendance.  In 1893, Antonín Dvořák was commissioned by the NY Philharmonic to write the “New World” Symphony; and during the 2016-17 season, the New York Philharmonic invited ensembles to participate by performing all or part of the New World Symphony through their New World Initiative Project. The resulting videotaped performances would be part of the NY Philharmonic Digital Archives.
