The concert celebrates the 200th anniversary birth dates of Giuseppe Verdi (1813), Richard Wagner (1813), and the 100th anniversary of Benjamin Britten (1913). Under the baton of Maestro Flock, the Philharmonic Orchestra will deliver the rousing overtures of "Nabucco" by Verdi and the "Flying Dutchman" by Wagner.

Benjamin Britten's "Soirée Musicales," based on musical themes by Rossini, invites the audience to toe-tap to its brilliant rhythms. Ralph Vaughan Williams' sweet-sounding "English Folk Song Suite" delights audiences in traditional folk song fashion. During intermission, young musicians from the Fox Valley Academy Orchestras will perform.
