Composer and lecturer Joelle Wallach discusses “Dvorak in New York City” in a free public program as part of her EtM Con Edison Composers Residency at Turtle Bay Music School. Dr. Wallach, a popular pre-concert lecturer for the New York Philharmonic, explores how composer Antonin Dvorak’s three years in New York City changed his music – and ours – as he crafted his impressions of Native- and African-American folk music into music “for the new world.”

Johnson Endeavor Foundation, AOH Foundation, DJ McManus Foundation and individuals.The EtM Con Edison Composers Residency Program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and Office of Council Speaker Christine C.
