Symphony Orchestra Concert – livestream event
The final concert by the ISU String Symphony will feature a world premiere by ISU composition faculty Dr. Roy Magnuson. Inspired by a saying by Gandhi “The enemy is fear. We think it is hate, but it is fear!”, DEFI is a piece inspired by the political events of today.

The concert will conclude with a performance of the dramatic Chamber Symphony by Shostakovich.
