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.
