IRIS Wired - 'The Natural World': Thomson, Puccini & Beethoven

The Classical Network in Concert presents the latest in our IRIS Wired series Friday (11/17) at 8 pm, entitled "The Natural World." Conductor Michael Stern conducts the IRIS Orchestra in works depicting the natural wonders, including Virgil Thomson's score to the 1937 documentary "The River," Giacomo Puccini's Chrysanthemums and Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 6.

Join host David Osenberg for this enjoyable concert broadcast. Based in Germantown, Tennessee, the IRIS Orchestra was founded by Stern, son of the legendary violinist, and is made up of preeminent musicians from across the country.
