FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA: BEETHOVEN & DVORAK
Maestro Robert Moody leads the exceptional Festival Orchestra–comprised of players from the nation’s finest orchestras–in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 featuring the award-winning American pianist Andrew von Oeyen. About von Oeyen, the Chicago Tribune raves “he can do absolutely anything he likes with a keyboard.” Rossini’s ebullient Overture to The Barber of Seville begins the concert and Dvorak’sSymphony No. 9 “From the New World”—one of the most popular symphonic works of all time –serves as the second half’s masterwork.
