SIOUX CENTER—The Northwest Iowa Symphony Orchestra will open its season, “Orchestral Celebration,” with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Dordt College B.J. Haan Auditorium in Sioux Center. Deborah Greenblatt joins NISO with a traditional Swedish instrument, the nyckelharpa—a keyed violin that is played with a bow. Each movement of the suite she will perform portrays a different fairy tale by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. The program also includes the music of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg and Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.
