ESO on WFMT tomorrow night at 8pm!

The Elgin Symphony will be on WFMT 98.7 tomorrow night - Friday, May 22 at 8pm.  This season's Classic 5 concert will be broadcast.
March 6-8, 2009
Robert Hanson, Conductor
Janacek    Suite from Cunning Little Vixen
Kurka       Suite from The Good Soldier Schweik
Dvorak      Symphony No. 9 ("From the New World")

For those of you unfamilar with Robert Kurka's opera The Good Soldier Schweik, the suite is for winds and percussion only.  It is a wonderful little work...also, quite difficult to perform.  I was lucky enough to get to play the one trombone part on this piece!
