The Heartland Symphony Orchestra will be opening its 47th season with their Fall Concert Series “Shall We Dance?”. This diverse program is meant to be energetic and upbeat as it contains music for dance or pieces directly inspired by dance.
Musical selections include featuring the horns of the HSO in a performance of Schumann’s Concertpiece. Soloists include Terri Deming, Andrea Lund, Jen Mickels, and Becky Stadem. Yao Dance, one of the most popular Chinese instrumental compositions of the 20th century and the timeless melodies from The Sound of Music by Rodgers & Hammerstein will also be performed.
HSO’s annual collaboration with St. Francis orchestras will be in Little Falls at Charles D. Martin Auditorium at 7:30 PM on October 14. This cycle will also include the first side-by-side performance with members of Brainerd High’s Sinfonia Orchestra in Brainerd at Gichi-ziibi Center for the Arts at 2:30 PM on October 15.
All ages welcome. No tickets necessary. Admission is FREE with free-will donations graciously accepted at the door or at heartlandsymphony.com.
These concerts are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. In Little Falls, the Laura Jane Musser Fund provides additional support.
