RSO Opens with Peace Concert

Right in Our Region:
The upcoming season for Rockford Symphony Orchestra, titled “War and Remembrances,” is centered on converging anniversaries related to U.S. military conflict: July 2014 marked 100 years since the start of WWI; April 2015 brings the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War; and August 2015 will see the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. Fittingly, RSO’s opening concert on Sept. 20 celebrates the United Nation’s International Day of Peace, officially observed each year on Sept. 21. Steven Larsen , RSO music director andconductor, was asked to take part by friend Jim Keeling, one of the founders of the Keeling-Puri Peace Plaza, a 2.5-acre park along Rockford’s Perryville Path. A Peace Day will be held there on Sept. 19. Open your e-magazine now to learn more about the RSO’s Peace Concert.
