Black Hills Symphony Chamber Orchestra to perform at kickoff event

LEAD, S.D. (KOTA TV) - The Black Hills Symphony Chamber Orchestra will perform in a kickoff event at the Historic Homestake Opera House on Jan. 7. The Epiphany Concert: Angels Project will begin at 2 p.m. and will be conducted by Bruce Knowles.

Musical selections from Vivaldi, Bach, Warlock, Respighi, Hovhaness, Corelli and Handel will be performed during the concert.
The opera house is going through renovations to the inside of the building. The goal is to restore the building to its original look from 1914.

“This is a very important time in this building’s life,” said Sarah Carson, HHOH executive director. “This 2018 project is an important milestone in South Dakota history, Lead history and Homestake Gold Mine history, and it’s important also for our community members and people who worked on this building before us. People now see the inspiring changes, and that progress is a reward for all of us.”

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for members, $15 for students and $10 for children 12 and under. Proceeds from the event will go toward the restoration project and to support continued building operations.

Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 605-584-2067 or at the door. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
