The New Haven Symphony Orchestra wants you to know that classical music is still relevant, especially you popular music fans. To help them spread the word, they're hosting violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain for an Artist Residency this month and next. DBR will showcase and celebrate the two styles of music with a multitude of concerts, workshops and in-school residencies. This week, he'll perform Dvorak to DBR, a program consisting of classical pieces and solos from DBR's piece Wood Box Concerto. Before the concert, check out Prelude, a lecture where DBR will talk about Wood Box Concerto and how he adapted it for the NHSO. Prelude is free. A matinee performance of the program can be seen on Sun., March 24 at Shelton Intermediate School.
