Chicago's Protégé Philharmonic to Present Fall Showcase Concert, November 13

 

 

 

Chicgo, Illinois, November 7, 2016 - The Protégé Philharmonic invites the public to their Fall Showcase Concert, the first concert of the orchestra's 2016-2017 season, on Sunday, November 13, 2016 in the Salme Harju Fine Arts Center, Northeastern Illinois University, 3701 West Bryn Mawr Ave., Chicago, IL at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are General Admission: $15; Seniors/Students: $10; Children, 12 & under: $5. Free parking in Parking Lot F.
 
Brahms's favorite Tragic Overture begins the concert and emphasizes demonstrating The Protégé Philharmonic's ability to bring great the wonderful turbulent, and tormented character of the piece to life. 
 
Protégé then performs the devilish and exciting Water Goblin by Dvorak which tells a story in four parts of a mischievous water goblin who traps drowning souls in upturned teacups. Next on the concert is Finlandia by Sibelius, a rousing and turbulent composition, evoking the national struggle of the Finnish people.  Bacchanale: "Sampson and Delilah" by Saint-Saens, from a grand three act opera is next and is based on the Biblical tale of Samson and Delilah. 
 
To finish out the concert, The Protégé Philharmonic will perform the wonderful and stirring Tannhauser Overture by Wagner. The theme behind this opera centers on the struggle between sacred and profane love, and ultimate redemption through love, a theme that runs through much of Wagner's mature works.
