Classical stirrings


The Illinois Chamber Orchestra’s next concert, Pure Passion, at First Presbyterian Church will warm you up for an approaching Valentine’s Day. Hear Elgar’s elegant and moving “Sospiri,” the pulsating tango of Osvaldo Golijov’s “Last Round” and the celebration of the American pioneer in Copland’s beloved and spritely “Appalachian Spring.” Music Director Alastair Willis will talk with the audience after the 7:30 p.m. performance.
