SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Friday night Springfield Symphony Hall will open its doors for a seasonal performance.

The Springfield Symphony Orchestra is gearing up for a celebration of spring sound with guest Conductor Mark Russell Smith returning to Springfield to lead the orchestra in a concert titled Dances of Spring. Smith will be conducting the full orchestra to the music of well-known composers, including Micheal Abels, who is best known for his scores on oscar-winning films “Get Out” and “Us”.

“It’s a river piece, it’s very colorful and evocative and here we are right on the Connecticut River so I thought it would be a great way to open the program,” Mark Russell Smith
