Maestro Kristian Alexander allies the Kindred
Spirits Orchestra in their concluding subscription concert of the
2015 | 2016 season. This summer the Greek sun-god evokes light and
generous integrity through Dutch composer Nielsen’s Helios
Overture. Antonin Dvořák’s popular Violin Concerto will
undoubtedly evoke instant conviction through wistful and heroic
themes. “A joyful little piece” is what Shostakovich labeled his
Symphony No. 9; sure to be a joyous end to spectacular season.
