Off the Podium with Stilian Kirov:
Maestro on Mendelssohn
2017 marks the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. As IPO opens our 40th Anniversary Season on October 14, Mendelssohn's Fifth Symphony was a natural choice for Opening Night in our new home, Trinity Christian College, and the beautiful Ozinga Chapel. Listen in as Maestro Kirov shares some of the historical and religious context for Mendelssohn's majestic "Reformation" Symphony.

Opening Night is sponsored by WFMT 98.7.
WFMT Web Feature on Maestro Kirov
As Stilian Kirov makes his conducting debut with IPO on Saturday night, we invite you to get to know him a little better. So grab a cup of coffee and "Catch up with Kirov." Special thanks to our Opening Night sponsor, WFMT, for this web feature interviewing our new maestro.
