CSO at Wheaton: Glover Conducts Mozart, Hayden, and Handel
Jane Glover leads an enchanting program of Baroque and Classical masterpieces. “Dazzling virtuoso” (The New York Times) Paul Jacobs performs one of Handel’s sparkling organ concertos, and the CSO’s Principal Oboe William Welter makes his first CSO solo appearance with Mozart’s expressive Oboe Concerto.

CSO at Wheaton: Muti Conducts Montgomery and Beethoven Pastoral
Riccardo Muti leads a world premiere by Jessie Montgomery, the CSO’s new Mead Composer-in-Residence. Raised on New York’s Lower East Side, Montgomery writes music that is “turbulent, wildly colorful and exploding with life” (The Washington Post). CSO Principal Bass Alexander Hanna solos in Bottesini’s bravura concerto before the program ends on a joyous note with Beethoven’s homage to nature, the Pastoral Symphony.

A New Partnership

Since its first performance at Wheaton College in 1960, the CSO has performed in Edman Memorial Chapel nearly 20 times. Consistently rated as one of the world’s most respected orchestras, the CSO is expanding its engagement with west-suburban audiences hoping to reach new generations with the glory of symphonic music.
