Weekend Outlook | Youngstown Symphony in a Romantic Mood

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Miriam Burns will return as guest conductor on Sunday to lead the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra in concert.

Also joining in the 4 p.m. classical concert at Powers Auditorium will be guest violinist Stephen Tavani.

Burns, who led the YSO in a concert at the start of the season, is the artistic director and conductor of the Paragon Philharmonia in Virginia, director of orchestras at The Ohio State University, and music director of The Orchestra of the Redeemer in New York, where she resides.
