Join us to inaugurate a new tradition and celebrate the power and beauty of music for strings. For the first-ever UIC Orchestra Invitational Concert, we welcome orchestras from two local high schools to perform: Northside College Prep, a Chicago public school, and Maine South High School from suburban Park Ridge. The UIC Orchestra headlines with a program featuring Antonin Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings, Handel’s Concerto Grosso in G minor, and a hair-raising arrangement from the English rock band Radiohead. And you won’t want to miss the combined finale featuring 100 musicians from all three orchestras.
All of our concerts are free and open to the public. Registration is required.
Music faculty, if you require students to attend a specific concert for class credit, please contact Neal McCollam.
