The new season of the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra was announced this week. Music director Raymond Harvey chose a personal favorite, Rachmaninoff's second symphony, to start his fifteenth year as maestro of the KSO. 

He shares his admiration for the season's guest artists, violinist Midori and pianist Leon Fleisher, and looks forward to helming a semi-staged production of Verdi's opera Otello

The two featured composers whose lives will be told in story and music in the series The World of are Benjamin Britten and Franz Schubert. Maestro Harvey will also continue the KSO Pops! series. Highlights include trumpet player Chris Botti, a program of Andrew Lloyd Webber, and a holiday concert, "Sounds of the Season."

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
