This discussion will be performed at the ESO concert on February 4, 2018, at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall in Evanston.
Julie Fischer will be performing short renditions by Pablo de Sarasate and Astor Piazzolla. This part of the performance will greatly validate the overall theme of the concert which is Spanish/Latin American. The “Musical Insights” will also present cover works on programs from Mexico and Argentina. Furthermore, a musical performance will be held by French and Russian composers depicting Spain. This is considered as the second of four musical concerts in the ESO’s project entitled “Music from Many Lands” season.

This will delve into several discussions and topic concerning the world of Orchestra. It will last for about one hour, and at every end of the recital series, discussion, or performance, they will be conducting a “Question and Answer” segment where the audience can speak about their thoughts on influential figures in orchestra. There will also be free refreshments which will be handed out to the last hour of the program. This will also be an excellent time when the audience can talk about the performance.
