HOUGHTON -- Did you know that every fall, the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra (KSO) performs more intimate, free, informal concerts at a local church? This week, the KSO continues their "Fall KSO Recital Series" with a concert titled "Once Upon a Time" at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at the Portage Lake United Church in Houghton.
Admission is free; however, a $5 donation at the door is suggested to support both the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra and the Portage Lake United Church.
This recital's theme -- Once Upon a Time -- invites beautiful and compelling vocal and instrumental music, including performances of fiddle music, opera, classical guitar, piano and flute solos; and piano trio. The KSO, with Joel Neves, conductor, has been a mainstay of the Upper Peninsula arts scene for over thirty years. The KSO counts among its musicians Michigan Tech students, faculty, and staff; community artists; and guest professionals from throughout the Upper Midwest.
The Portage Lake United Church is at 1400 E. Houghton Avenue, across from the Michigan Tech campus.
