Joseph Young leads Dvorak...

James Lee III is an associate professor of composition and theory at Morgan State University, Baltimore and he has been composing for about a decade and a half.  His music often has a spiritual or religious connotation and is influenced by his Seventh-Day Adventist faith. Sukkot Through Orion’s Nebula was written in 2011 and the 10-minute work makes reference to the sounds of the shofar, an ancient musical instrument made from a ram’s horn. According to the composer, the music represents the grand advent of the Messiah, who in the end, comes down from heaven, through the nebula located in the constellation Orion. That was certainly not obvious from the music itself.  Click here for the full review:
