ESO Rehearsal January 25 led by Music Director Andrew Grams Free and Open to the Public

The orchestra will be rehearsing Jan 27 & 28 Williams Scores for Spielberg Movies program

The public is invited to attend a free open rehearsal of the Elgin Symphony Orchestra (ESO), led by Music Director Andrew Grams, on Thursday, January 25 at 7:15 pm for Elgin residents.  Attendees MUST register online at ElginSymphony.Org.  Registration is online ONLY. No phone calls and no registration onsite.  Limit four (4) reservations.  Doors open at 6:30 pm. Grams and the Orchestra will be rehearsing the January 27 & 28 Williams Scores for Spielberg Movies ESO program, which includes familiar favorites from Close Encounters, E.T., Hook, Jaws, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and lesser-known works from Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List.  Andrew Grams received a degree in conducting from the Curtis Institute in 2003 and since then, in addition to leading the Elgin Symphony Orchestra, he has traveled the world to critical acclaim for his superb technique, charismatic conducting and ability to connect with musicians and audiences alike.  For tickets to the Jan 27 & 28 concerts, visit ElginSymphony.Org.

With a unique combination of intensity, enthusiasm and technical clarity, American conductor Andrew Grams has steadily built a reputation for his dynamic concerts and long-term orchestra building.  He is the winner of 2015 Conductor of the Year from the Illinois Council of Orchestras and has led orchestras throughout the United States including The Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Detroit Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Dallas Symphony, and the Houston Symphony. Mr. Grams served as Assistant Conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra from 2004-2007.  Andrew Grams, now in his 5th ESO season, became music director of the Elgin Symphony Orchestra after an international search. His dynamic conducting and easy accessibility have made him a favorite of Elgin Symphony audiences.  He has extended his contract with the ESO through 2021.

 

Now in its 67th season, the Elgin Symphony Orchestra (ESO) offers programming unmatched for an entertaining, informative and relaxing cultural experience. The ESO has won Illinois Professional Orchestra of the Year an unprecedented four times – in 1988, 1999, 2005 and 2016. The ESO strives to create an enjoyable entertainment experience that goes beyond the magnificent music performed by some of the best musicians in the region. There is accessible, free parking around the Hemmens Cultural Center and valet service available. Before concerts, area musicians often perform in the lobby, and patrons can buy drinks at the bar and purchase gifts at the Elgin Symphony League Boutique. Pre-concert chats are given by Music Director Andrew Grams, guest artists and others one hour before most performances, and Saturday night patrons are invited after concerts to Mingle with the Musicians at area restaurants.  In addition, free Listeners Club discussions presented by music historian Jim Kendros are offered in Geneva and Elgin on Wednesdays before ESO Classics Series concert weekends. Flex passes are available for purchase so that you can choose your concerts at a later date based on your own schedule. And if a patron can’t make a concert, the ESO offers free exchanges to subscribers and to single ticket buyers for a small fee. The Elgin Symphony Orchestra is a world-class orchestra providing quality musical explorations that are entertaining, hassle-free and conveniently located close to home in the western suburbs.
