EYSO's 39th season:
A Thousand and One Nights
Every year, the Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra (EYSO) develops its concert season around a central theme so young musicians (3rd grade to college) may explore, study and understand a specific idea from various perspectives. Themes from past seasons focused on time, movement, architecture, and invention. This year the EYSO is pleased to announce its 39th season - A Thousand and One Nights.
The EYSO has long believed that the comprehensive study and performance of great music offers the opportunity to look at the arts as more than a pleasant diversion. Rather, the arts are seen as a lens to view the human experience, a special way of understanding reality, and a way to communicate what we know about the world and ourselves.
Concert performances are on Sundays at 2:00p.m., 4:30p.m. and 7:30p.m. Each concert features different EYSO Orchestras (there are five in all) and a Brass Choir. There are also special performances throughout the year by the EYSO Chamber Music Institute, honors chamber groups, guest conductors, and guest performance artists.
