The SEK Symphony is honored to welcome Dr. Er-Gene Kahng, violin, to perform Florence Price Second Violin Concerto.
A newly rediscovered piece just premiered by Dr. Kahng and the Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra on February 17, 2018.

The SEK Symphony will be the second orchestra to perform this exciting work and we are so delighted to share this opportunity with our audience in Pittsburg, Kansas.
