Like a great meal, this final performance of the season is filled with a variety of sweet and delectable treats. The winners of our Young Artists’ Competition will be featured in amazing and inspiring performances with the orchestra. In addition, we welcome back our good friends, the Health Sciences Orchestra of the University of Minnesota, and our new friends, the Burnsville High School Orchestra under the direction of Scott Kosloski. Together with the Dakota Valley Symphony, we will perform Symphony No. 2 by Sergei Rachmaninoff with its themes familiar from movies and pop songs. Also featured on this program will be Dances in the Canebrakes by Florence Price. Price composed Dances in the Canebrakes in its original piano version in 1953, the year of her death. Her friend, William Grant Still, turned her piano dances into a set of works for orchestra.
