Executive Director's Letter


Welcome!

Thank you for joining us for Origins, our first-ever livestreamed orchestra performances. When I wrote my welcome message to our virtual concert in May, we were celebrating the fact of being able to close out last year’s season strongly, albeit differently than we planned.

Since then, our team has worked hard to make possible the return this year to face-toface rehearsals in a way that lets us meet or exceed COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.

Staff members have spent countless hours studying ever-changing public safety guidelines and best practices. We have been in regular discussions among our team and with key partners like our friends at Elgin Community College. This investment of our time and energy, combined with the EYSO values we bring to this process, has allowed us to develop protocols that make this season not just possible, but extraordinary.

Last spring, I shared how proud I was of what our administrative staff, conductors, coaches, donors, parents, and most of all our students as they shifted activities to remote learning and ultimately a virtual concert–our first.

My level of appreciation since then has only grown, as students and parents point out that, for many, this is a true point of stability and joy in an otherwise challenging world filled primarily with virtual activities.

So much in our lives, and the lives of our students, is different now. It makes the opportunity to enjoy and learn from the performance of music together ever more special. It is worth noting that this return to in-person activity has never, and is still not, taken for granted by us.

Many others have suspended operations or moved fully to remote activity, and for understandable reasons.

I would also like to thank our financial supporters–from individuals to foundations to the state–who helped make this all possible and are helping us defray the additional expenses required to hold in-person activity safely in the current environment.

I thank all of you who have helped us whether by supporting your student, volunteering, or donating. If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more about EYSO or supporting our mission, please visit eyso.org or call me at (847) 841-7700.

With gratitude,

K. Eric Larson
Executive Director

Artistic Director's Letter


Stories, fairy tales, myths, legends: these are how we make sense of the world around us. Fact or fiction, they have a way of telling us about ourselves, both in what we consciously know, and in the murkier realm of the implicit.

Great artists know this—cultural expectations, traditions, and personal biases are inevitably woven into their art on multiple levels. How does music reveal these, and how do these fundamental facts (and fictions) influence both the music and the musicians as we study and and perform together?

At EYSO, we often use the term “expert noticer” to describe our approach both to making music together and to examining the wider world around us. As expert noticers, we use music and our season theme as lenses through which we deepen and broaden our understanding of ourselves, of our communities, and of the roles we play in them. In Origins, our first concert of the 2020-21 season, we peel back the layers of notes and rhythms and sift through the accumulated historical and performance traditions. As we study and perform together, we investigate not just the how to of music, but the why.

This season more than ever, the why matters. As communities and individuals face challenges cutting across all facets of life, making sense of the world around us is both more daunting and more critical than ever before. The stories we tell, the way we tell them, and voices sharing them: these things matter.

And with the challenges of this year, each of us has the opportunity to re-examine what matters to us in our stories, and in our lives. The feeling of community each Sunday, the critical examination of concepts and ideas, and the thrill of making music together at the highest level have been constants in a year that often leaves us feeling adrift. Through our investigation and study of great music, we better understand the stories we tell ourselves—our own myths and legends, and our own values and beliefs.

Thank you for being a part of this journey in our 45th season, Myths & Legends.
Matthew Sheppard
Artistic Director
