The Mankato Symphony Orchestra held its last concert for its 2012-2013 Symphonic Series today. Featuring a variety instruments, the event started this afternoon at Mankato West High School. Titled "It Ain't Necessarily So" today's music was a mix of classical and jazz genres. Guest artist Andy Stein strummed along with the symphony playing the violin. Mankato Symphony Orchestra board member Herb Kroon says, "Andy is very good because he is a very good violinist both doing serious work and doing the kind of jazz things that he's good at so it's just going to be fun to hear Andy perform."
Stein has appeared with the orchestra in the past and has been on the show 'A Prairie Home Companion' several times.
