Findlandia, Music of Sibelius
- Sibelius—Symphony No. 2: This four-movement piece by the renowned Finnish composer has turned heads due to more than just its dramatic finale—many believe it was written as a call for Finland’s independence from Russia. Even though Sibelius himself never confirmed that, the symphony still has become so connected with the country’s struggle for independence that is popularly called the Symphony of Independence.
- Rautavaara—Cantus Arcticus (Arctic Songs): Written in 1972, this piece—subtitled Concerto for Birds and Orchestra—folds in birdsong recordings. Rautavaara captured the chirps near the Arctic Circle, and on the bogs of Liminka, located in northern Finland.
- Sibelius—Onward Ye Peoples

About Macomb Symphony Orchestra
From its many violinists to its lone contra bassoonist, the heart of the Macomb Symphony Orchestra is 70 musicians strong. The pulse, however, is Thomas Cook. The conductor of the MSO for nearly 40 years, Cook also serves as its music director, programming evenings that range from the classically sublime to the delightfully unexpected—such as the 2014–2015 season's Music '70s Style. While their size helps them bring dynamic works such as Carmina Burana to life, they don't merely travel in packs. Chamber ensembles, such as the string quartet, flute and harp duo, and brass quintet, travel throughout the community to brighten weddings and bring classical music to schools.
