The Anchorage Symphony Orchestra’s 2009-2010 season is over. Last Saturday Sam (Calla House) attended the last of the season's performances of the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra (ASO) at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. The concert featured the Harlem String Quartet who performed "Concerto for String Quartet and String Orchestra" (The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow). The piece was engaging with many surprise treatments of the Sleepy Hollow legend. It was a concert to be remembered.
