And to fill out the month we have a variety of Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra performances!  Music To You brings a variety of Duluth Superior Symphony
Orchestra classical musicians into our communities to those who might not
otherwise have an opportunity to hear live music. In August, you can enjoy a
taste of Latin America, the Beauty of Harp and
Flute music, a String Quartet and learn about the Science of Sound at libraries
across the region.
In the “Timeless
Beauty of Harp and Flute”
, Betty Braunstein and Janell Lemire play two of
the world’s most beloved and oldest instruments in the world. Using their
modern flute and harp, images from the past, instruments from other times and
places, and their music, these fine musicians will explore the question of why
human beings have been music-makers since the beginning of time.
