Dirk Meyer: Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra Kicks Off a New Season
"This is always an exciting time," says Dirk Meyer of the upcoming symphony season. The Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra kicks everything off with works by Adolphus Hailstork, Korngold, and Brahms. "It's very, very cool music."
Meyer is coming up on his tenth year of bringing the requisite passion and precision to the DSSO, and efforts have gone beyond the music this year. "We really wanted to make an effort this year to become more accessible." Part of this accessibility refers to selections. This Saturday, the work of Korngold may remind you of Errol Flynn swinging to the rescue decked out in classic Robin Hood garb, while the show in February will take audiences to a galaxy far far away as the symphony takes on John Williams.
Also a part of making things more accessible are new ticket prices. For individual shows, ticket prices range from as little as $10-$20. The DSSO is also offering a Nine for Ninety deal. "We have nine concerts throughout the season... ten dollars a ticket for the best available seat."
