Guest Blog Post: Elgin Symphony Orchestra
An audience favorite and graduate of the Julliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music, Andrew Grams is one of America’s most promising and talented young conductors and has already appeared with many of the great orchestras of the world. Maestro Grams recently announced the 15-16 season of the ESO, which will feature the music of American composers at each concert.
Natasha Paremski began her piano studies at the age of four and made her professional debut at age nine with the El Camino Youth Symphony in California. In recent years, she has been featured in a major two-part film for BBC Television on the life and work of Tchaikovsky, performing excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto and other works, and has recorded Tchaikovsky’s first concerto and Rachmaninoff’s Paganini Rhapsody with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Fabien Gabel on the orchestra’s label distributed by Naxos.
The Elgin Symphony Orchestra experience is unmatched for a fun, relaxing, cultural experience. Patrons can enjoy a drink, time with friends and even shopping in the lobby of the Hemmens Cultural Center. After Saturday night performances, the audience is invited to “Mingle with the Musicians” at the local restaurant, Elgin Public House. From start to finish – the ESO brings world class, big city entertainment without the hassles of the big city.
