DuPage Symphony Presents “Mostly Mozart” Chamber Music Performance on April 6

 

The DuPage Symphony Orchestra continues its 60th Anniversary Season with “Mostly Mozart”, the second of two concerts in the DSO’s intimate chamber music series.  Music Director Barbara Schubert conducts members of the DuPage Symphony, honored by the Illinois Council of Orchestras as the 2013 Community Orchestra of the Year, in an afternoon performance at First United Methodist Church of Lombard, 155 South Main Street in Lombard, on Sunday, April 6, at 3:00 PM.

The concert features four masterworks of the Classical era with several DSO musicians as featured soloists.  The central work on the program is the Konzertantes Quartett of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a piece for solo oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and horn with orchestral accompaniment.  Four DSO principal wind players are featured in this unique composition:  oboist Margie Arito of La Grange, clarinetist Deb Zelman of Naperville, bassoonist Diane Remillard of Downers Grove, and horn player Gary Greene of Berwyn.  DSO clarinetist Donald Lurye of Glen Ellyn is the featured soloist in movements from Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, presented with a select string quartet of DSO musicians.

The program also features the DSO String Trio – concertmaster William Allmart of Wheaton, principal violist James Fawley of Clarendon Hills, and principal cellist Jennifer Duitsman-Stankoskey of Wheaton – performing the String Trio in G Major, Op. 9, No. 1 of Ludwig van Beethoven.  Mozart’s beloved Eine Kleine Nachtmusik – performed by the full string ensemble – completes this lively, intimate program of Classical era masterpieces.
