50th Anniversary Celebrated by Symphony of the Mountains in concert with the McLain Family Band

Posted by Jeffrey Cowart

The Symphony of the Mountains performed in concert with the McLain Family Band to celebrate 50 years of the band’s creative and spirited music style on Nov 17, 2018, in the McGlothlin Center for the Arts at Emory & Henry College. The program combined traditional Appalachian music from the McLain Family Band with the music of the Symphony of the Mountains.

The symphony, which enjoys a partnership with Emory & Henry, is led by Cornelia Orth, who has taught and conducted all over America and Europe. The McClain family, hailing from Berea, Ky., has traveled all over the world but always return to the Appalachian Mountains and the music of this region.
