“The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra said its 2020-2021 season—with in-person concerts as well as exclusive streaming programing—will be truly different than anything else in the past 105 years,” writes Earl Horlyk in Friday’s (11/13) Sioux City Journal (Iowa). “The season begins, Dec. 19, with ‘Christmas with the Symphony.’ An annual tradition, this year’s offering will include a performance from the Hegg Brothers’ Holiday Jam, a multipiece band…. On March 20, ‘Symphonic Strings’ will … pay tribute to string instruments in a program featuring works by Grieg, Hanson, Vaughan Williams, and Grainger. ‘Simple Gifts’ … on April 24 [will] give the Symphony a chance to present a classic ode to the American frontier … Appalachian Spring…. ‘Glorious Brass,’ on June 12 [will feature] the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra Brass and Percussion sections. Exclusive streaming programming will include ‘Beethoven 250,’ ‘Dvořák String Quartet,’ ‘Nielsen Wind Quintet’ and ‘Trailblazers Foraging New Paths’ will be available at SCSO, the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra’s new streaming service and on-demand app.”
