Lincoln-Way 210 Symphony to perform inaugural concert Thursday, February 23, 2017
On Sunday, February 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m., the students of the Lincoln-Way 210 Symphony will perform in the Lincoln-Way West Fine Arts Center. The Lincoln-Way 210 Symphony is a 90-piece extracurricular ensemble compromised of students from all three Lincoln-Way schools, performing advanced high school and professional orchestral literature.
“I’ve always wanted to do this and it seemed like this was the perfect year,” says Director Stacy Williams-Jackson.
The performance is approximately one hour long and will feature:
• Highlights from Schubert's Unfinished Symphony,
• Rodrigo's Fantasia para un gentilhombre for guitar and orchestra with Lincoln-Way Central senior Michael Maurer as soloist,
• Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, and
• Music from DreamWorks How to Train Your Dragon.
Tickets can be purchased at the door, and are $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for senior citizens and Lincoln-Way students.
“The students sound great,” says Williams-Jackson. “I truly have a great mix of the best winds, brass, strings, and percussion of the entire district. They’re really motivated to do upper-level literature, and all are excited for this performance!”
