Joseph Conyers has redefined classical music––both as a genre and as a tool for social change. Through his newly launched chamber ensemble titled Dubhe, Conyers aims to create a blueprint for the multi-faceted, multi-dimensional 21st century musician. The ensemble, which will feature rotating cohorts of influential musicians, will launch at the 2022 National Orchestral Institute + Festival and tour throughout the 2022–23 season. In this debut performance, Dubhe will perform works by Florence Price and Antonín Dvořák.


Arr. Conyers: Walk With Me
Price: String Quartet No. 2 in A minor
Dvořák: String Quintet No. 2 in G major, Op. 77

This event is part of the National Orchestral Institute + Festival (NOI+F), a program of The Clarice at the University of Maryland. NOI+F trains aspiring orchestral musicians, composers, conductors and arts administrators from across the country in a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration. Trailblazing conductor Marin Alsop was appointed as the first-ever Music Director of the National Orchestral Institute + Festival in 2020. In addition to conducting innovative programs onstage at The Clarice and at Wolf Trap, Maestra Alsop launched the NOI+F Conducting Academy for rising young conductors in 2021. In 2015, NOI+F began a partnership with Naxos to record one concert of all-American music each year—Naxos’ first partnership with a summer festival of its kind. The 2019 recording “Ruggles, Stucky, Harbison” received a Grammy nomination in the "Best Orchestral Performance" category.

The Clarice lobby concession bar Encore will be open for beverage and snack sales.
