Spotlight Series: Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra Thursday, March 5, 2020 - 7:30 pm Under the direction of School of Music professor and conductor Rebecca Burkhardt, the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra presents the first Spotlight Series concert of the spring 2020 term, which will include la chanson du printemps . . . (1999) (the song of the spring . . . ) by Marilyn Shrude.  For tickets, call (319) 273-4TIX or visit https://unitix.uni.edu/.

la chanson is an intimate and introspective work for string orchestra that uses the familiar Czech folk song, Kdoz jste bozi bo jovnici (Ye warriors of God), as its main thematic material. It also pays respect to the great work of Karel Husa, Music for Prague 1968, which quotes the same melody.
