Heartland Symphony Orchestra has scheduled a great line-up of music for their 41st season. The themes for 2017-2018 include “The Great Romantics” for the Fall concert series, “Holiday Voices” for Winter and “The Essence of Spring” for Spring.

The first concert of the season will be held in Little Falls on October 14 and Brainerd on October 15 and will feature the music of Brahms, Saint-Saens, and Wagner. Cellist, Scott Lykins, will be the featured guest artist. He will perform the Cello Concerto No. 1 in A Minor, Op 33 by Camille Saint-Saens. Mr. Lykins is an accomplished performer and also the founding artistic and executive director of the Lakes Area Music Festival in Brainerd.

Heartland Symphony Orchestra will present its Winter concert season in Little Falls on December 2, 2017 and Brainerd on December 3, 2017. “Holiday Voices” is the chosen title of the Winter Concert Series. The HSO will be joined in the second half by the heavenly voices of the Legacy Chorale for a program full of holiday music including the “Hallelujah Chorus.”

The Spring concert series, “The Essence of Spring” will be held April 7 in Little Falls and April 8 in Brainerd. The music includes work by Gabriel Faure and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The feature of the Spring Concert series will be the performance of music by the winner of the Composer’s Competition.

Heartland Symphony Orchestra is a 50-piece volunteer, nonprofit, community orchestra serving the communities of Brainerd and Little Falls.

These activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and by a generous grant from the Laura Jane Musser Fund.
