The Longview Symphony’s new conductor, Jerry Steichen, wants to tell people about his favorite concert in the symphony’s lineup for its 51st season.

Only he can’t choose.

“They’re all my favorite,” he said.

Some details still are being worked out and some surprises are planned, but the season that kicks off in September will include special guest performers, opportunities to get to know the symphony’s musicians, concerts away from the Belcher Center, hometown flavors and — cue the drum roll — a Disney concert.

The symphony board named Steichen conductor this year after a search that began in summer 2018 when former conductor Gene Moon resigned.
