In February of 1878, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36, premiered at a Russian Musical Society concert in Moscow with Nikolai Rubinstein as conductor. Considered the first of his mature symphonic works, Tchaikovsky dedicated the piece to his patroness Nadezhda von Meck. On finishing the symphony, the composer wrote, "It seems to me that this is my best work. Of my two latest creations, the opera and the symphony, I favor the latter. What lies in store for this symphony? Will it survive long after its author has disappeared from the face of the earth, or straight away plunge into the depths of oblivion? I only know that at this moment I... am blind to any shortcomings in my new offspring. Yet I am sure that, as regards texture and form, it represents a step forward in my development..."

Now, 135 years after the creation of this magnificent symphony, the Des Plaines Park District Community Concert Band, under the direction of Lawrence J. Carle, will perform the finale from Symphony No. 4 in F Minor at their October 27 fall concert. Additional selections on the program include: Pachelbel's "Canon in D"; "The Cowboys", by John Williams; "Nobles of the Mystic Shrine", John Philip Sousa; "Pie Jesu", Andrew Lloyd Webber; Elton John's "Candle in the Wind"; and Selections from Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story."

The concert will be played at the Prairie Lakes Theatre, 515 E. Thacker Street, on Sunday, October 27, at 3:00pm. Tickets are available at the door: Adults $5; seniors and students $3; family $12 (2 adults, 1 or 2 children). The concert is free for children under age 6. For more information, visit www.DPParks.org or call 847-391-5711.
