Program Change for May 2, 2020

The Writing on the Wall

DULUTH, Minnesota – The Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra has announced a programming change for their May 2nd concert. A letter from Music Director Dirk Meyer on the change:

Dear Friends,

In May, my wife Paula and I are expecting our second child! Our little one is due right at the time of our final performance of the season, and so I will be unable to conduct the May 2nd concert. Because of this, we have decided to change the repertoire.

Instead of Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast, the DSSO will perform one of the most beloved choral works of all time, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. We are excited to welcome to the podium both our assistant conductor, Ho-Yin Kwok, and our DSSO Chorus Master Richard Robbins.

I hope you will join Paula and myself in our excitement for the newest addition to our family and I thank you for your understanding.

Dirk Meyer
Music Director

The title of the concert has been changed from “The Writing on the Wall” to “Carmina Burana.” Tickets with the title “The Writing on the Wall” will still be valid for admission to the concert. All ticket sales are final and programming and artists are subject to change. Questions regarding this change can be directed to our Box Office at 218-623-3776 or
