Augustana Symphony Orchestra: Second City Symphonists
Please note, this event has expired.
The Augustana Symphony Orchestra kicks off its season with Second City Symphonists. The concert also will feature the Rock Island High School Orchestra, Katie Benson, director.
The program features two composers who had deep connections to the city of Chicago. William Grant Still and Florence Price grew up in Little Rock, Ark., studied with the same childhood music teacher, and then spent significant portions of their professional careers in Chicago. William Grant Still probably is best known for his Symphony No. 1 which he subtitled “Afro-American” and brought together elements of his musical upbringing with elements of his classical musical training.
