JSO Concert ‘Revitalize’ December 9 – 10
The Joliet Symphony Orchestra (JSO) is pleased to announce the second concert series of its 2023-2024 season with newly appointed Artistic Director and Conductor Dr. Sean Paul Mills leading a program featuring works by Edward Elgar, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. French horn soloist Emily Whittaker is the featured guest artist on this concert set.
Titled “Revitalize,” the JSO will perform Edward Elgar’s “Froissart Overture,” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “French horn Concerto No. 3,” and Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 6 (Pastoral)” on Saturday, December 9, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, December 10, at 4 p.m. Both performances will take place in Sexton Auditorium which is in the Harold and Margaret Moser Performing Arts Center on the University of St. Francis campus, 500 Wilcox Street in Joliet.
New to the JSO this season is a series of free pre-concert discussions titled “Noteworthy.” These discussions take place 45 minutes prior to each performance and provide audience members with an opportunity to learn more about the composers, selections, orchestra, and soloists, as well the time to as ask questions and interact with the conductor and guests.
Tickets for JSO concerts are available through the JSO website at www.jolietsymphonyorchestra.org, the Music at Moser website at stfrancis.edu/music-at-moser/, and at the door beginning one hour before each performance. Adults are $10; seniors, alumni, and non-USF students are $5; USF students, music educators, and youth 18 and under are free with a current ID.
Please join us as we continue a season of exploration and discovery featuring both familiar and new works for symphony orchestra. Just a reminder, the annual Family Concert will be presented on January 20. This will be followed, in February, by the next concert set, which will feature a celebration of American music with works by Aaron Copland, Florence Price, Leonard Bernstein, and John Knowles Paine. The season finale in April will feature trumpeter Gilmar Cavalcante as soloist in Johann Nepomuk Hummel’s trumpet concerto, along with works by Ferdinand Herold and Antonin Dvorak.
