Greetings from Elmhurst College!
On behalf of the College, I would like to personally invite you to an Insider’s Tour on Wednesday, October 19th, to see an “inside” look at some of the exciting things happening in Elmhurst College’s science and performing arts programs. While the event begins at 4:00 p.m., please know you are welcome to join the tour at any point in the evening. In addition, if you have not had a chance to meet our new president, Troy VanAken, he will join us during the reception in the A.C. Buehler Library.
Have you ever heard a tuba soloist in an orchestral performance? If not, this is a concert you won’t want to miss! Mark your calendars now for an exhilarating afternoon of music starring Eugene Pokorny, principal tuba of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, who joins the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra in “Brass Fanfare II” on Sunday, November 13, at 3:00 p.m. at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church. Resounding with magnificent music featuring the powerhouse of the orchestra—the brass—the program includes the exciting world premiere of Terry Everson’s Brass Fanfare II, performed by Mr. Pokorny and area high school brass players, commissioned especially for this concert. You will also enjoy Verdi’s La Forza del Destino Overture and Vaughan Williams’ Concerto for Tuba and Orchestra with Mr. Pokorny as soloist. In honor of Veterans’ Day, the orchestra will perform the Armed Forces Salute. Veterans and active duty members of the military are invited to come in uniform. Tickets for all current, retired and former military personnel will be offered at half-price; please call 630-941-0202 to purchase tickets. Generous sponsors of the concert are Keith and Irmgard Olson (music scores) and Shirley Myers (guest soloist Eugene Pokorny.)
