When: July 11-12 2014
If you see one Symphony on the Prairie concert this year, well, have you pick according to your tastes and calendar, but we highly recommend this Beethoven meets Time for Three pairing. OK, that testimonial wouldn’t fit on a poster; there’s a reason we didn’t get that copywriting gig. But this is a fine lineup. The first part of the concert belongs to the ISO’s outstanding ensemble-in-residence, whose members we’ve seen mature by a few years as they’ve explored their vision of American classical music, with heavy dollops of jam and folk. And then because the ISO still has respect for the canon, you have Teddy Abrams conducting Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.
