CIA Hosts World Premiere of Symphony

Northern Dutchess SymphonyThe Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra highlighted its 10th anniversary season with the world premiere of an original symphonic work at the Marriott Pavilion on the New York campus on April 2. Walkway Over the Hudson was commissioned by NDSO and written by Ben Kutner, a 24-year-old New York-based composer.

The orchestra performed the complete work, along with Ferde Grofé's Grand Canyon Suite—in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. Both works were accompanied by images of the bridge and canyon projected on a screen behind the orchestra.

Mr. Kutner describes Walkway Over the Hudson as a three-movement symphony in which each movement corresponds loosely with a chapter in the bridge's history: a vital rail link, a fire-damaged structure lying in disuse, and the grand footbridge that exists today.
