Carl Nielsen's "Helios Overture" contributes an elegant showpiece to the repertoire list and offers the audience a musical setting of Greek god Helios and his chariot of the sun and sky. As a tribute to the composer, JSO programs two works by William Grant Still during Black History Month, annually observed in February. JSO peforms Still's Second Symphony and includes artist Don Hilsberg as featured soloist in "Ennanga" for harp and orchestra. Alberto Ginestera, often inspired by his Argentine landscape and folk-culture, wrote "Estancia" to idealize gaucho life on grassy plains.
