Host Jody Knol starts this week's program with the Lansing Symphony's 2019 performance of the popular Semiramide Overture by Gioacchino Rossini.

However, the bulk of the episode will feature a mid-pandemic performance at Flint's Whiting Auditorium as Maestro Enrique Diemecke leads the Flint Symphony through the cheery and pastoral Second Symphony of Johannes Brahms, as recorded in March of 2021.
