Special guests for symphony finale tonight
ISO guest pianist Martina Filjak
Guest conductor Stefan Sanderling
The Illinois Symphony Orchestra will be closing out its 20th anniversary season (and first under the musical direction of Maestro Alastair Willis) in just a few hours with the appropriately named Fabulous Finale.
Tonight's program will be led by guest conductor Stefan Sanderling, and includes Beethoven's Seventh Symphony and Copland's Quiet City, as well as Schumann's Piano Concerto featuring renowned guest pianist Martina Filjak from Croatia.
Pick up this coming week's Illinois Times (Thursday, 5/9/13) to read my impressions of the concert as well as some hints from Maestro Willis as to what lies ahead for the ISO in coming seasons.
The concert begins at 8pm tonight at the UIS Auditorium. Purchase tickets at the box office (217.206.6160) .
