HOUGHTON -- The Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra will conclude its five-city tour with a concert titled "Suites!" at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 25, at the Rozsa Center.

According to KSO Conductor Joel Neves, "The Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra concludes its 44th season with a performance comprised entirely of concert suites: Short multi-movement orchestral works that tell a story. 'The Golden Cockerel' is based on a Russian fairy tale; 'L'Arlésienne' is the incidental music to Daudet's The Girl from Arles; 'Water Music' is music written for King George I."

The KSO has been performing this repertoire in April during its inaugural five-city concert tour to Crystal Falls, Algoma, Oshkosh, Chicago and now finally Houghton.

Also available the night of the performance is a "VPA Livestream" of the music, at, for those who are not able to be present for the event. (Please note, this link will not be active until the time of the event.)
