Helena Symphony launches its 69th season with two exciting and revelatory Montana premieres 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Helena Civic Center.
Electrifying star of concert stages and films, Montana violinist and composer Tim Fain will perform “Edge of a Dream,” his joyous new violin concerto.
The concert also features a Montana premiere of Black female composer Florence Price’s Third Symphony.

Born in Arkansas in 1887, Price wrote classical music in the 1930s through the 1950s, but much of her music and life story remained unknown until the past 14 years.
The concert will be followed by an Opening Night After Party, featuring catered cuisine, cocktails and a silent auction at the civic center.
This will be Fain’s second performance of “Edge of a Dream,” said conductor Allan R. Scott, and the first time he’s performing it for a Montana audience. He debuted it with the Amarillo Symphony.
