Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra Executive Director Christina Salerno says, “IPO is thrilled to be able to present a conductor of international stature, Maestro Darko Butorac, as a valuable asset to the students of Lincoln-Way Central High School. Through Maestro Butorac's guidance at the ‘Meet the Maestro’ educational event, students will gain valuable insights into what makes a memorable orchestra performance, even while they expand their own musical interpretations.”
