Since 1986, the Dakota Valley Symphony has performed concerts in parks, churches, schools, community centers and other public buildings throughout the south metro area. The organization was created to provide opportunities for skilled volunteer musicians to perform diverse music of all periods. The group also provides a forum for aspiring local composers to premiere their work. The symphony is comprised of a 60-member orchestra, a 40-member mixed chorus and a 90-member Summer Pops orchestra and chorus, all under the direction of founder and musical director Stephen J. Ramsey. This concert was produced for KFAI by Daniel Zamzow.
During the first hour we listened to the Lannen-Jukka String Band from Finland. The concert was recorded at the 2007 Nordic Roots Festival at the Cedar Cultural Center by Chris Dronen and edit by Dan Rein.
In the second hour we listened to an interview with Serbian guitarist, Maja Radovanlija, with live guitar tracks.
