Evanston Symphony Orchestra (2:30 pm - 4:30 pm)

Extended Excerpts from Swan Lake Highlight Evanston Symphony’s All-Orchestral Concert 

The Evanston Symphony Orchestra continues its 69th season – titled Romanticism Endures, at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall in Evanston conducted by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling on Sunday April 26, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. The program opens with one of Mozart’s most popular works, the Symphony No. 40 in G Minor.

The principal work of the concert will be a “Symphonic Suite” taken from Tchaikovsky’s score for the ballet Swan Lake. This suite presents the most powerfully symphonic sections of the ballet in addition to well- known shorter dances, and has a playing time over 50 minutes.

The Romanticism Endures season features works of both the 19th and 20th centuries that exemplify the continuing appeal of Romanticism to both composers and audiences.

Single tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors, $5 for students and FREE for children. Order forms, additional information and single tickets are available on-line at www.evanstonsymphony.org or by calling 847.864.8804. Children’s tickets are only available by calling 847.864.8804.

Founded in 1945, the Evanston Symphony was the Illinois Council of Orchestra’s “Orchestra of the Year” in 2010.  The ESO mission is to provide community members of all ages with convenient, affordable opportunities to perform and hear fine classical music from locally, nationally and internationally renowned artists.

Evanston Symphony Orchestra - Swan Lake & Mozart (2:30 pm - 4:30 pm)
The Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, will perform favorite works by Tchaikovsky and Mozart. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is the iconic ballet, subject of movies such as the Black Swan and a favorite musical source for Olympic skating programs. Its 1877 premiere was not a great success as the music was criticized for being “too symphonic.” Our symphonic suite presents 50 minutes of both favorite dances and its grandest symphonic passages. Mozart was Tchaikovsky’s favorite composer, and the passionate 40th Symphony shows why as it opens this all-orchestral concert.
