Evanston Symphony Orchestra – Imperial London

The Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, presents its March concert entitled Imperial London.

The final 12 symphonies of Franz Joseph Haydn are collectively known as his “London symphonies,” and the final one of the 12, to some the greatest of all, is titled the “London” Symphony. William Walton’s Crown Imperial has been wittily referred to as the “Pomp and Circumstance March No. 6” as a worthy successor to Elgar’s five Pomp and Circumstance marches. Britten’s orchestral showpiece, The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, will be narrated by Henry Fogel, Dean of the Chicago College of Performing Arts of Roosevelt University.

The ESO concert will be performed on Sunday, March 18 at 2:30 p.m. at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, 50 Arts Circle Drive. For more information, or to purchase tickets, please visit www.evanstonsymphony.org.
