Saturday night, the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra opens its 104th season with a legendary performer.
Dame Evelyn Glennie is a Scottish percussionist who experienced hearing loss as a child.
“This is a woman who has not only carved out her own career as the first solo percussionist in history. Obviously overcame such big odds, at the age of 12 was deaf.”
That’s Maestro of the Symphony, Ryan Haskins.
He says the Symphony has worked since 2014 to make the show happen.
