"My plan for this season is to present concerts 
that will feature the creations and recreations 
of Arts rooted in Africa and Arts rooted in Africa. 
Most importantly this is great art, worthy of the 
world stage, which happens to have been created 
by people of African descent. As a part of our 
presentation this season, the orchestra will 
feature music by well-known local composer 
Fred Onovwerosuoke ("FredO"), whose music 
evokes Mother Africa. Incidentally, FredO's work 
 calls for optional  interpretive dance, which will 
be performed by the Inversion Dance Theatre 
choreographed and led by Keith Williams...Thanks 
 to the generosity of our sponsors, the University 
City Symphony Orchestra is able to present this 
concert free of charge to you, our beloved
