The next Marquette Symphony Orchestra concert is titled "Romantic Virtuosity," and takes place Saturday, January 14th at Kaufman Auditorium in Marquette.

The concert features music by Jean Sibelius and Vasily Kalinnikov. Sibelius' Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47 will also feature violin soloist Yvonne Lam, followed by Kalinnikov's Symphony No. 1 in G minor. The composers were born a year apart, in 1865 and 1866, respectively, but Sibelius lived to the age of 91, while Kalinnikov died of tuberculosis two days before his 35th birthday.

Kurt lives in Marquette with his family and can’t imagine living anywhere else. He loves music, games, running, being near water, and a fine cold brew coffee.
