East Coast Tour Spring 2019

Orchestra tour 2019 banner

 

The Wheaton College Symphony Orchestra will be embarking on a spring tour, March 9-17, 2019.

These unique concert events will offer a wonderful opportunity to hear major works such as Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, or Brahms majestic Symphony No. 3,  and Respighi’s Fountains of Rome performed by Wheaton’s 70-member ensemble and conducted by Professor of Music Dr. Daniel Sommerville. 

The Orchestra may also be presenting a work that they premiered by one of Wheaton’s own composition professors, Dr. Misook Kim. Titled The Awakening, this work is written as a response to the 100-year anniversary of the WWI armistice, drawing attention pain of war, especially as it has been experienced in Korea.  

The Orchestra may also present an infectiously rhythmic piece by Michael Abels titled Urban Legends, which features standout percussion writing alongside a solo string quartet.

In addition to the appearances listed below, the orchestra will be visiting area schools, touring the nation’s capital, learning from local professional musicians, and sharing their music in a youth correctional facility. We look forward to seeing you on tour!
