Evanston Symphony: Scheherazade and Other Tales

The Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, opens its Platinum Anniversary season with orchestral favorites depicting literary tales, and each one includes a storm!

Of course, there is much more, including the “Lone Ranger” in Overture to William Tell and one of Tchaikovsky’s most impassioned love themes in The Tempest Fantasy Overture. ESO Concertmaster Julie Fischer will portray the wily Scheherazade with her many violin solos.
