The Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra begins its new season this weekend, and it marks the third season under the leadership of music director and conductor Stilian Kirov. He joined us this week on Valley Edition to talk about Friday night's opening concert, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, a stage play by Tom Stoppard with music by Andre Previn. We also talked about upcoming concerts featuring a centennial tribute to Leonard Bernstein, and Romantic-era composers like Dvorak, Brahms and Strauss.
