Sep 5, 2017 9:25 AM -
Be prepared for a season of spectacular music-making when the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Music Director and Conductor Stephen Alltop, opens its 57th season of exhilarating musical adventures on October 14 at 7:00 p.m. at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church with a concert of music that will make your heart sing. "Mozart and Beethoven Gems" begins with Mozart's Overture to La finta giardiniera, followed by featured guest artist Elizandro Garcia-Montoya in a brilliant performance of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A Major. Rounding out the program is Beethoven's well-loved Symphony No. 6 in F Major (Pastoral). From poetic to lively, bubbling brook to torrential cloudburst, this will be Mozart and Beethoven at their most sublime. This concert, in memory of ESO board member Edgar Swarthout, is sponsored by a generous gift from Ray and Sally Allen. Jane and Richard Kiep are generous underwriters of the Mozart Overture.
