Heartland Symphony Orchestra will hold their Spring Concert Series called “The Essence of Spring” on April 6 in Crosslake, April 7 in Little Falls and April 8 in Brainerd. The program, under the direction of Dr. Alexander Corbett, features “Scheherazade, Op. 35” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, “Pelleas and Melisande, Op. 80” by Gabriel Faure and “Clarion”, an original work by Flannery Cunningham, winner of the 2018 Composers’ Competition.
The Spring Concert series begins on Friday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. with a free outreach concert in Crosslake, Minnesota at the Crosslake Lutheran Church. This concert is sponsored in part by Crosslake Businesses. On Saturday April 7 at 7:30 p.m., Heartland Symphony Orchestra will perform in the Charles D.

Conductor Chats will be held 45 minutes prior to each concert. These chats provide an opportunity to meet the conductor and learn a little more about the music before enjoying the concert.
