For the Symphonic Series 2017-18 Season, we will be playing from the greats: three of Beethoven's greatest pieces, Dvorak, and Christmas time classics like the Nutcracker, but we have a few dazzling surprises in store to light up your year. Our performance of the concert version of West Side Story is sure to be a dramatic night and wonderful way to celebrate 100 years of Leonard Bernstein, and our animated accompaniment to Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition is sure to excite the techie in all of us. We're flipping the switch on some of our most impressive, experimental and enjoyable performances ever. Be illuminated by the power of the Mankato Symphony Orchestra this year and see and hear what classical music can be.
