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.
