The Classical Symphony will then perform Nielsen's Symphony No. 2, Op. 1, "The Four Temperaments." The Orchestras then combine together to perform Liszt's exciting Les Preludes.

 

Mr. Glymph remarked that both orchestras have enjoyed an extremely successful Summer season, with exceptional artistic achievement, audience attendance and enthusiasm. "The beautiful rendition of Classical Symphony Orchestra's Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, Op. 64 of Tchaikovsky and Protégé Philharmonic's exciting Capriccio Italien of Tchaikovsky and Four Dance Episodes of Copland this season have been immensely gratifying. I'm looking forward for both of these fine ensembles to cap a fine Summer season," said Glymph. The Protégé Philharmonic and The Classical Symphony are the only Chicago training orchestras with a regular summer season covering this age range.
