Established in 1990, The Dvořák American Heritage Association (DAHA) commemorates, celebrates, and continues to explore composer Antonín Dvořák’s extraordinary musical contributions, with a special emphasis on his influential residency in the United States in the years 1892-95. From its home in the beautifully restored Bohemian National Hall in New York City, DAHA offers concerts, lectures, and educational programs. At the heart of these activities is the Dvořák Room, a newly created exhibition and study space with adjacent performance venues, that provides inspiration to present and future generations by preserving the composer’s American legacy.
Celebrating the 175th anniversaries of Antonín Dvořák (Born September 8, 1841) and the New York Philharmonic (Founded April 2, 1842; first performance, December 7, 1842).
