The Mankato Symphony Orchestra is a model for what a community orchestra can be. The ensemble is in and about the community it serves. Besides its symphonic season, the orchestra sponsors a chamber music series, supports a fun jazz series, and is the force behind the Learning Through Music Reading Readiness Program for young people.
In this week's Regional Spotlight, conductor Kenneth Freed leads the ensemble in "Hebrew Melody" by Joseph Achron. The soloist is Israeli violinist Ittai Shapira.
