Join the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Maestro George Stelluto, Oto Carrillo, and Christine Lamprea, for the Sounds of Spring concert on Saturday, March 25, 2023.
Oto Carillo, horn, of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, opens the concert with Strauss’s Horn Concerto No. 1. This work, written when the composer was only 19 years old, was inspired by his father’s playing. The dynamic young Christine Lamprea, cello, then joins us for the Cello Concerto No. 1 by Saint-Saëns, one of the finest Romantic works for the cello. The program ends with a youthful work by Bizet, the Symphony in C.
Patrons are invited to join us early at 6:30 pm for a free pre-concert lecture with Maestro Stelluto. This is a great way to get insight into what you're about to hear inside the concert hall.
The Sounds of Spring concert is sponsored by the Peoria Symphony Guild, Sid & Flo Banwart, the Conductor's Circle, and the Meredith Foundation, and this concert is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
