Last night we attended the Mobile Symphony Orchestra appearing at the Saenger Theatre. Dvorak moved to New York at the turn of the century and wrote the New World Symphony #9. A great deal of it was based on Longfellows poem: Hiawatha. The first half of the program was narrated by three gentlemen explaining the scope and unfolding of the symphony. One of these narrators was none other than Charlie Smoke from the Mobile Arts Council, who has spoken to the Chickasaw Chamber of Commerce. Well known music made better by a stunning orchestra and terrific narriation.
