Sibelius wrote about En Saga (A Fairy Tale), that in no other work did he reveal himself so completely. We contrast this tragic tale with one of humor and rambunctiousness: Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, one of Strauss’ greatest instrumental works. Finally, Strauss’ final composition, his Four Last Songs, includes some of the most beautiful music you’ll ever hear. Performed by Metropolitan Opera veteran, Christine Brewer, this will be an evening to remember!

Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra



Joined by the fantastic DSSO Chorus, we are offering three works that reach back in time for inspiration. Gradually we step back further: From the folk music roots of Grieg’s Symphonic Dances, to the Old Testament texts of Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms and finally Ravel’s incredible setting of the ancient Greek story of Daphnis and Chloe. This concert boasts with wonderful contrasts and most exhilarating music.
