Join Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra members, friends and musicians for the symphony's next virtual musical program of the season, beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22. This video on demand will be available online through Dec. 6.

Under the baton of Music Director and Conductor Stephen Alltop, the music of 18th-century Viennese composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will come to life as the acclaimed Israeli pianist Ran Dank performs the elegant Piano Concerto No. 14 in E-flat Major, joining the ESO musicians through an innovative use of video technology.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"Mostly Mozart" also showcases compositions of English composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, an imaginative composer of delightful and expressive music. You'll make a new musical friend when you hear two charming movements from his Four Novelletten for Strings.

Maestro Alltop will provide commentary on the music and composers.

Dank is the recipient of numerous honors, including the Naumburg Piano Competition and the Sydney International Piano Competition, and first prize winner of the Hilton Head International Piano Competition.

Enjoy this exciting program at a time convenient for you from the comfort of your home -- a great way to help celebrate the holiday season!

Tickets for the program are $28 and $25 for seniors.

Tickets can be purchased via www.elmhurstsymphony.org, or by sending a check to Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra, P.O Box 345, Elmhurst, IL 60126.
