South Carolina Philharmonic: Beethoven and Blue Jeans 2015

The Koger Center in Columbia, SC was the site of this concert from 2015, which welcomed musician and NPR classical music commentator Miles Hoffman. He joined the orchestra for a Berlioz work based on an epic poem by Lord Byron and commissioned by none other than Paganini.
