Welcome to the Dvorak Project Page


Here you'll find information, links, and lessons relating to Antonin Dvorak's time spent in America at the turn of the century.
We will be reading the book Dvorak in America by Joseph Horowitz, researching important issues of the era, and listening to and analyzing music of Dvorak as well as what he considered the "true" American music, Negro Spirituals and Native American melodies.
