Week 8: Sokol and Bever REDUX

We have another diverse program featuring many guests this week.
Violinist Natalie Brown will be joining us for two pieces: one of the
most haunting and beautiful movie melodies of all time, as well as
some good old fashioned Irish fiddling. A number of talented
musicians from our local high schools will perform–including a rising
star on the…anvil. And of course, since one of our concerts takes
place in Sokol Park, we offer a polka and the most famous march from
the “Bohemian Sousa!”

Furthermore, we’ll have a prelude concert at 6:30 on Sunday by the Cedar Rapids Youth Flute Ensemble!
