NICEVILLE — The Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra invites patrons to join the region's premier symphony for a musical journey through Europe, America and a "Winter Wonderland."

The season's concerts begin Sept. 28 with "An Austro-Hungarian Journey," featuring music by Johann Strauss and a suite of Hungarian dances.

"American Impressions," Nov. 16, features the regional premiere of guest artist Jeff Midkiff's "Concerto for Mandolin" from "The Blue Ridge."

The program also includes Antonin Dvořák's "New World Symphony," a salute to our young nation.

Bells will jingle and carols will deck the halls for the popular annual "Holiday Pops" concert on Dec. 13, transforming the Mattie Kelly Performing Arts Center into a musical winter wonderland.

On Feb. 7, 2014, "The Stars of Tomorrow Meet Handel" features annual concerto competition winner guest artists and the NFSO's performance of George Frideric Handel's "Water Music."

The season concludes April 12, 2014, with "A German Spring Celebration," including Robert Schumann's "Spring" Symphony and Felix Mendelssohn's "Overture to the Beautiful Melusine."
