The Cherokee Symphony is opening their 45th concert season with a Pops concert on Sunday, Oct. 29, 4 p.m., at the Cherokee Community Center, under the direction of Maestro Lee Thorson, of Storm Lake.
The symphony will perform a variety of music, some serious and some fun. They will perform Aaron Copland's "Lincoln Portrait," which will be narrated by Dr. Joe Traylor, who is a professor at BVU and is also a member of the cello section. Another selection is "Hymn to the Fallen," by John Williams from the movie, "Saving Private Ryan."
For fun, the symphony plans to perform highlights from "Rocky," a medley that takes the audience from sea to shining sea, and highlights from the "Wizard of Oz."
Admission at the door is $6.00 per person. Season tickets will be honored and all students are admitted free of charge.
