After 18 years with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, Raymond Harvey will conduct his final performance as music director on May 26. The maestro will return in future seasons music director emeritus, but he marked the transition by looking back at his legacy of music-making in Kalamazoo in an interview with Cara Lieurance. They discuss the "World Of" series, notable guest artists, his love of conducting opera, his appearances as a solo pianist, and his admiration for the orchestra itself. 

Raymond Harvey will conduct his last performance as music director of the Kalamazoo Symphony on May 26 in Miller Auditorium. More information is at the Kalamazoo Symphony website.
