May 4, 2018

New artistic director and violin soloist for The String Orchestra of the Rockies Maria Larionoff joins us, along with outgoing artistic director and cellist Fern Glass Boyd, to preview the SOR's May 6 performance, "The Cascades Meet The Rockies."

"I'm thrilled, as is the whole orchestra and the board," Boyd says of Larionoff's arrival. "I know that our audiences will be also thrilled to have her be our new leader and bring more exciting and fantastic things ahead for the orchestra and the Missoula area."

Tune in now to hear more details about the orchestra's upcoming performances, including the revival of "Music For String Orchestra," composed in 1992 specifically for the String Orchestra by David Maslanka, who died in 2017.
