Family Opportunity: AFSE's Community was given the opportunity from the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture to attend on Tuesday, December 18, a free Carnegie Hall Concert entitled "Antonín Dvořák—America is An Idea, Not Just a Place”, celebrating the 125th anniversary of "Dvorak at Carnegie Hall". Antonín Dvořák, protégée of Johannes Brahms and heir to the highest tradition of European composition, came to America in 1892 at the bequest of Jeanette Thurber, the creator of the National Conservatory of Music--the first institution to allow women and people of all color to create music at the highest level. His collaboration with the African-America singer/arranger Harry Burleigh, resulted in what Dvorak called a "great and noble school of music" in America.
