Over the past number of years, we've been delighted to off periodic performances from the Glacier Symphony Orchestra in Kalispell, MT. The orchestra's director, John Zoltek, is as well a composer. His concerto for cello and orchestra, Through Tamarack and Pine, recently received its premiere, and we were pleased to offer it as part of a Concert of the Week broadcast. In this From the Studio offering, Jim Tevenan talks with John Zoltek about his background as composer, the process of writing this work and more.
