Helena Symphony Season Continues With 'The Sacred & The Seductive'

The Helena Symphony continues its 60th season with a concert titled "The Sacred & The Seductive". The concert takes place  Saturday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Helena Civic Center.

Allan R. Scott, music director of Helena Symphony, and Kile Smith, the Symphony's Composer in Residence  spoke with MTPR Program Director Michael Marsolek about the upcoming show and the theme of "The Sacred & The Seductive."

"The Sacred & The Seductive" features music by American legend Aaron Copeland, French composer Maurice Ravel, and the symphony's Composer in Residence Kile Smith.  The title alludes to an American spirituality in the music of the two American composers juxtaposed with Ravel's evocative and atmospheric Daphnis and Chloe, considered on of the great masterworks of the last century.

Michael Marsolek is the program director of Montana Public Radio. He also hosts Tuesday Freeforms and Thursday Morning Classics.
