Distinctive, evocative, cool in nature and expression, the music of the north reflects the character of the landscape and its peoples.  Undaunted, inspired by the fierce beauty of their homelands, both Sibelius and Nielsen are unique, entirely of their time and place.  The NSO proudly features Principal Bassoon Anna Norris in John William’s orchestral foray into Celtic mystery and mythology, and welcomes Guest Conductor Matthew Kraemer.
