Hearland Symphony Orchestra to showcase virtual spring concert

Event premiers March 27


The Heartland Symphony Orchestra’s spring concert will be a virtual production due to COVID-19 restrictions as well as player and audience health considerations.

HSO Music Director Ryan Webber will host a compilation of previous concerts that will premier at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 27. The program will feature footage from past winners of both the HSO Youth Concerto and Composer Competitions.

HSO’s virtual spring concert “Music From the (Virtual) New World” will be available to watch at people's convenience on HSO’s website at and YouTube channel.

These concerts are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. In Little Falls, the Laura Jane Musser Fund provides additional support.
