2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote. To honor this occasion the UMD Symphony Orchestra will perform a world premiere of Maria Newman's Our Rights and Nothing Less for Symphony Orchestra and Speaker written in honor of Susan B. Anthony's 200th birthday. The second half of the program will feature Brahms' Symphony No. 4.

Please note that this performance will no longer feature Phenomenal Women by Valerie Coleman.

Under the baton of new Music Director David Neely, the UMD Symphony Orchestra (UMSO) showcases the orchestral program with uncompromising attention to musical excellence. Pushing the boundaries of the orchestral experience, UMSO presents innovative and electrifying performances of orchestral repertoire both modern and classic.
