Presenting Bolero!

See your MSO friends playing one of classical music’s most beguiling pieces with a fun video intro by Crafton Beck. One by one, musicians enter with the inviting theme, building as they go, (even using a few instruments that might not have been in the original)! And, wait until you see some of the visuals! Watch the MSO musicians having fun and so thrilled, as they're missing playing for you live--several playing more than one part. Can you name all the musicians involved?! 

Join in the collective excitement of the piece as MSO comes alive in this difficult time, and click here to watch the video by Craig Young when it goes live TODAY at 5pm! This project was created and edited entirely by Craig Young, and we could not be more appreciative of his sharing it with us!
