Music Director and Conductor Brian Dollinger will take a solo role in the opening with a Sinfonia Concertante for Double Bass and Viola by Dittersdorf. Dollinger plays double bass, and will be joined by Western Illinois University faculty violist Istvan Szabo. Szabo will then be the soloist in a Fantasie for Viola & Orchestra by Hummel. Completing the program will be Gluck’s “Dance of the Furies” from his opera Orpheus and Eurydice, and a Divertimento in D Major” written by Mozart in 1776, possibly in celebration of his sister Nannerl’s name day.

We hope you will join us for Saturday’s 7:30 pm concert that will take place in Clinton High School’s Vernon Cook Theater. Note that the parking lot has moved to the north side of 8th Ave South.
Pandemic Protocols – The auditorium for Saturday’s concert is quite spacious, and rows will be blocked off, encouraging a seating distance (Patrons select their own seats). Masks are encouraged, with complimentary masks available to concert-goers. In addition, there will be a hand-sanitizer station at the door. The program is not long, and there will be but a short intermission.
