Emporia Symphony Orchestra holding fifth anniversary concert Tuesday

It may be hard to believe, but the Emporia Symphony Orchestra is into its fifth year of making music -- and it's celebrating with a special anniversary concert Tuesday night.

Conductor Dr. Jeremy Starr says the theme, "A Noble Journey," is exactly what the Symphony Orchestra is all about.
