Senior Suburban Orchestra Free Concert
The Senior Suburban Orchestra has scheduled a free concert for 2:00 pm on Tuesday, November 13th. The event will be held at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, 5739 Dunham Road in Downers Grove. The program will acknowledge the Illinois Bicentennial by featuring pieces by two Illinois composers: Adolf Weidig’s Trauer from Drei Episoden, op. 38 and Felix Borowski’s La fête from Peintures (Paintings for Orchestra). The program also includes selections from the musical, Chicago, and Over There, a medley of songs in honor of the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War I which the audience will be invited to sing along with the orchestra. The Senior Suburban Orchestra, awarded the 2018 Community Relations Orchestra by the Illinois Council of Orchestras, is conducted by Dan Pasquale D’Andrea. It was founded in 2000 and has grown to become a 45-piece performing organization, which presents more than 15 concerts per year. Most concerts are by invitation at retirement homes, schools and other civic venues. There is no admission charge for the concert, but donations are appreciated.
