Sioux City Symphony Music Director and Conductor Ryan Haskins chats with SPM's Steve Smith about Saturday Night's "Church Windows" concert at the Orpheum Theater.
Respighi's Church Windows gets the title nod, but the program around it also feature a world premiere from SCSO Composer of the Year, Patrick O'Malley, Debussy's Sunken Cathedral and a mysterious symphony by Alan Hovhaness.
It's the last concert of the 2017 portion of the 2017-2018 concert season for the SCSO and it's beginning to look, and sound a lot like Christmas. Conductor Ryan Haskins tells us what he can about a show that's shrouded in mystery....and holiday cheer, of course.
The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra plays the score, and the giant Orpheum screen will show the animated classic - kind of a mix of the classic with the remake, actually - Disney Fantasia. SPM's Steve Smith sits down with the SCSO's Ryan Haskins for a preview.
Disney Fantasia, a film that was made to showcase classical music, was shown Saturday in the Orpheum Theater. Best of all, the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra performed the score, live! Gretchen Gondek talks with the man in charge of keeping everything in synch, Conductor, Ryan Haskins.
The Sioux City Symphony perform their annual Christmas with the Symphony Concert tomorrow (Saturday) night at the Orpheum Theater. Three area handbell choirs, a dynamic up and coming local violinist and the Mighty Wurlitzer all make appearances.
