Classical WNIU invites you to experience Rockford Symphony Orchestra's next "Classics Series" concert at the Coronado Theater this Saturday, April 26th at 7:30pm.

The RSO presents "Love of Homeland" featuring four works inspired by just that.  The evening begins with Dvorak’s tone poem My Homeland, honoring his beloved Bohemia.  He was inspired by Smetana’s Ma Vlast (my country) and you will hear the vivid depiction of the Vlatava River in Moldau, the most well know section of that work.
