Alexander Sandor: Classical, Ragtime and the Itasca Symphony Orchestra
Every piece of music sort of creates its own world, its own universe, and you get to live in that universe when you're when you're playing the music...Each of those universes has a certain character, a certain feeling...a lot of times there are emotions that are expressed within the music and you get to feel those often very powerful emotions without having to experience whatever would have normally caused those emotions to exist within a person. - Alexander Sandor.
For the first time in over one year, the Itasca Symphony Orchestra will perform in front of a live audience this weekend. Alexander Sandor will join the production as a featured guest pianist. In this Area Voices segment, learn about the history of ragtime music, how a professional pianist's mishap lead to Sandor's first time playing with a professional orchestra when he was in college, and much more.
