Seminal Harvard sociologist W.E.B. Du Bois, who combined music, sociology, and philosophy to fight for social equity, serves as inspiration for our orchestra, as we engage with social issues by understanding that classical music is a key for authentic dialogue for and beyond aspects of social class, income, educational background, race, and gender.

We believe that leveraging our power and privilege as artists and scholars to share the power of music broadly creates a more inclusive sphere to interact with classical music on a deeper level.

While the orchestra provides an engaging community for advanced orchestral playing at Harvard, it also seeks to make music a means of overcoming social exclusion. In our concerts, we perform marginalized and underrepresented works along with standard repertoire. In addition, community outreach initiatives for youth is an integral part of our understanding that music brings unites individuals with diverse experiences that enrich discourse through art.

For our upcoming Spring concert, we are performing a piece by Hans Krása. Our orchestra will look to develop a perspective which is critical of the past by putting composers of the traditional repertoire next to an excellent and unjustly forgotten composer, Hans Krása, who was killed by fascists. Hans Krása’s strong belief in music made him work until his death in the ghetto of Theresienstadt, where he composed this overture in 1943.

We purchased Hans Krása: Overture for our April concert - the funds raised would contribute to this purchase, and continue to allow for free admission at our concert so that everyone may attend.
