Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra - Rhapsodies in Blue Member Picks

When: Sat., Oct. 17, 7:09 p.m. 2009

A trip along the beautiful Blue Danube with an All-American detour! Don’t miss the first-ever performance of the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra in a magnificent new space. Johann Strauss’s lilting Blue Danube Waltz will be a gracious prelude to the rousing Hungarian Rhapsody No. 1 of Franz Liszt, featuring the gifted young pianist Sophie Luo. Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue will delight you in the hands of rising star George Lepauw. What better way to conclude this magnificent evening than the unbridled energy of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. Selections include: Star Spangled Banner - Francis Scott Key On the Beautiful Blue Danube - Johann Strauss, Jr. Hungarian Rhapsody No. 1 in F Minor - Franz Liszt Rhapsody in Blue (original Jazz Band version) - George Gershwin Symphony No. 7 in A, Op. 92 - Ludwig Van Beethoven
