It’s a very special week for the musicians and fans of the South Dakota Symphony orchestra. World-renowned pianist, Emanuel Ax, is launching the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra’s centennial season with Beethoven’s Emperor concerto.
Music Director, Delta David Gier joins us to tell us more about this weekend’s Centennial Season launch.
This weekend’s performance is the finale of Mr. Ax’s week-long South Dakota Symphony Orchestra residency including concerts at local schools, hospitals, and community centers. And there’s been an addition to the program: Composer Aaron Jay Kernis and his piece ‘Elegy-For Those We Lost’ in remembrance of Covid-19 victims.
