The musical roots of North America are explored in this concert, as the ISO performs music by Jerod Tate, a classical composer and citizen of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma. Based on Native American Indian lore, Tate’s Ghost of the White Deer describes the quest of a lovesick man searching for a white deer, which is sacred to the Chickasaw people. Acclaimed African-American composer Jessie Montgomery brings us a piano concerto co-commissioned by the ISO along with several orchestras throughout the United States, and the popular “New World Symphony” by Dvořák helped to validate American music and lore as a source of musical inspiration in the late 1890s when it debuted.
