The South Dakota Symphony Orchestra has already been named “One of America’s Boldest Orchestras” by New Yorker magazine. Now, the orchestra will “boldly go where no man has gone before” as they travel through the greatest hits of science fiction movies and television.
Thomas Fortner is the Assistant Conductor of the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, and he will be conducting this weekend’s Sci Fi Spectacular concert.
He joined us today to give us some insight into the popular music that will be featured at this weekend’s performance from Star Wars, Aliens, Star Trek, and more.
