He shares his admiration for the season's guest artists, violinist Midori and pianist Leon Fleisher, and looks forward to helming a semi-staged production of Verdi's opera Otello

The two featured composers whose lives will be told in story and music in the series The World of are Benjamin Britten and Franz Schubert. Maestro Harvey will also continue the KSO Pops! series. Highlights include trumpet player Chris Botti, a program of Andrew Lloyd Webber, and a holiday concert, "Sounds of the Season."
