This spirit of Americana is coupled with maverick Charles Ives’ Symphony No. 2, complete with gospel tunes, American songs, and barn-dancing fiddles. The season opener culminates with Beethoven’s revolutionary testament in THE groundbreaking and mighty Eroica Symphony. The evening concludes with a dessert reception in the Helena Civic Center Ballroom.</p> Sun, 08 Sep 2013 12:00:00 +0000 Michael Marsolek 7870 at http://kufm.org Helena Symphony opens 59th with Governor Bullock
