David Kim will conduct "Wind," the next concert in Symphonia's "Inspired Naturally" series.

A strong "Wind" is coming to Boca Raton this weekend.

That's the title of the next concert in The Symphonia's series, "Inspired, Naturally."

The series took its inspiration from "Terra Nostra", an award-winning, multimedia symphony about climate change.

David Kim, renowned concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra, is principal conductor and violin soloist for "Wind."

Kim says he supports classical musicians using art to stand up for environmental or social justice.

"It's a necessary part of our mission — not to just put on nice clothes, come on stage and play beautiful music," Kim says.

"I think it's also our responsibility to represent and be a part of the community beyond just art."
