Last year, the New York Philharmonic Community Engagement Department invited our baroque band to participate in their New World Initiative Project.  In 1893, Antonín Dvořák was commissioned by the NY Philharmonic to write the "New World" Symphony; and during the 2016-17 season, different diverse ensembles were invited to participate by performing all or part of the New World Symphony. The resulting videotaped performances would be part of the NY Philharmonic Digital Archives.  Our concert was Feb. 16, 2017 at 7pm at the National Opera Center, and the Deputy Consul General of the Czech Republic in New York, Karel Smékal, attended.
