Cultural historian and award-winning author Joseph Horowitz is bringing his multi-media education project “Dvorák and America” to DePauw University School of Music. The event schedule for the six-day festival, which explores the influence of Antonín Dvorák on American national identity at the turn of the 20th century, includes round table discussions, classroom visits, master classes with bass-baritone Kevin Deas, and three major concerts.
The DePauw Dvorák Festival is funded through a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant award—one of five music programs in the state of Indiana to receive funding in the Arts Works category out of 1,515 eligible applications nationwide.
The festival will be held at the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts, located on the DePauw University campus (605 S. College Avenue).
