A concerto (con-CHAIR-toe) is a piece of music written for soloist(s) accompanied by an orchestra or other ensemble. Basically, it’s a chance for a virtuoso musician to show off what they can do while the rest of the orchestra backs them up, and this ConcertoFest! is packed with virtuoso soloists:
Violinist Jasmine Lin returns to the Elmhurst Symphony after her most recent, stellar performance with the orchestra in 2019.
Brandon Acker makes his solo debut with the Elmhurst Symphony playing the theorbo, a plucked string instrument in the lute family and a distant cousin of the modern guitar.
Finally, Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra musicians Naomi Bensdorf Frisch (oboe) and Andrew Nogal (oboe) join guest concertmaster Emi Tanabe (violin) and step into the soloist spotlight for this exciting program!
