Here’s a #FlashbackFriday looking back on when the London Orchestra came to Ames, IA in 1974!
The London Symphony Orchestra came to Iowa State during the Ames International Orchestra Festival in 1974. This was the first year the festival featured an orchestra from outside the United States.
The orchestra performed several sold-out concerts in C.Y. Stephens Auditorium, each with a different soloist. Sounds like an incredible event!
