At age 50, the Rogue Valley Symphony Orchestra is looking fairly fit.
As it reaches a half-century, it reports a healthy growth in recent years, while maintaining a balanced budget.
Music Director Martin Majkut (pronounced MY-koot) gets some of the credit. He's led the orchestra since 2010, and into a period of artistic and monetary growth.
The maestro has interesting stories to tell, both about RVSO and his own life journey as an immigrant.
He visits the studio to share the stories with us.
