Music has always played a part in stirring up patriotism in the hearts of humankind. Two Columbia Gorge Sinfonietta concerts slated for this weekend will explore that phenomenon through their presentation of “The Heroic Spirit in Music.” On Friday in The Dalles Civic Auditorium and Sunday at Wy’east Middle School performing arts center, the 45 musicians of the Sinfonietta, under the direction of Mark Steighner, will offer an array of musical perspectives that explore this theme.
