The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra (SEISO) presents the second of their Masterworks Series

The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra (SEISO) presents the second of their Masterworks Series concerts this season, Mystical Footprints, on March 18th at 7:30 PM at Ottumwa’s Bridge View Center and March 19th at 2:00 PM at Burlington’s Capitol Theater and 6:30 PM at Iowa
Wesleyan’s Chapel Auditorium in Mt. Pleasant. This concert combines Hindemith’s masterpiece with several other lesser-known pieces making for a varied and exciting program. Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler is the centerpiece of this concert and is not to be missed. The
SEISO Chorus will be featured on Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus”, Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs with soloist Blair Buffington, and Williametta Spencer’s At the Round Earth’s Imagined Corners. The program is rounded out by the 2022 Marilyn Minford McCoid Young
Artist Competition winner, Mattias Luitjens, a senior at WACO High School, performing Henryk Gorecki’s Piano Concerto. “I’m thrilled with the variety of this program and I think anyone that comes is really going to enjoy it. We combine some well-known composers and works with some that will be unfamiliar,” said Robert McConnell, Music Director of the SEISO. “The Hindemith is particularly enjoyable
and patrons will be reminded of our performances of his Symphonic Metamorphosis last season. I think many people are surprised at how easy it is to enjoy our concerts and how different they are from what they expected.” Tickets to the Masterworks Series concerts in Burlington, Ottumwa and Mt. Pleasant may be purchased at the door or on our website Adult tickets are $20. Children/student
tickets (aged 0-22) are free. There is no reserved seating.

Rand Memorial Lecture Fund in Burlington and is offered free of charge to all audience members.
