    INSPIRED BY THE COMPOSERS’ MOTHERLAND, this breathtaking music will envelope you in Russian passions: Sergei Prokofiev’s compelling Alexander Nevsky cantata for chorus and orchestra, drawn from the 1938 movie that recounted Prince Alexander’s 13th Century winter march to defeat invaders, and Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s “Winter Dreams” Symphony 1, which opens with a movement entitled Dreams of a Winter Journey. Chicago mezzo-soprano Stacy Eckert joins us as soloist.

    Presented At: Hinsdale Central High School, 55th & Grant Streets, Hinsdale, Illinois 60521

    A CONCERT OF CONTRASTS will conclude our Hinsdale-based concert series, with nods to the muses of tragedy and comedy: Antonin Dvorak’s soulful Symphony 7 and Edvard Grieg’s nostalgic Elegiac Melodies, paired with Dvorak’s Humoresque No. 7 and Franz von Suppe’s Jolly Robbers Overture. In addition, Margaret O'Malley of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, the winner of our 71st annual solo competition for high school students, will perform the first movement of Camille Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3 in B Minor.

    JOHANNES BRAHMS’ MAGNIFICENT GERMAN REQUIEM will move your soul with its affirmation of personal faith and victory over death. In his Requiem, Brahms redefined the genre and, instead of creating a Latin mass for the dead, created one to console the mourners left behind. While Brahms selected text from the Old and New Testaments and the Apocrypha, the overall message is more about human spirituality than a particular faith. We will introduce that great work with Brahms’ Tragic Overture.  Joining our orchestra and chorus as soloists for the Requiem will be soprano Ann McMann and baritone Jeffrey Ray. 

    Presented At: Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Avenue, Naperville, Illinois 60540
