Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra begins its 36th concert season with two concerts in October.
The KSO’s fall concert, “French Impressions Redux” is Oct. 6, at 7:30 p.m. in Boutell Memorial Concert Hall in the Music Building of Northern Illinois University, DeKalb.
The KSO will celebrate two of the great composers of French Impressionist music, performing the “Mother Goose Suite” and “Pavane for a Dead Princess,” by Maurice Ravel, and “Danses for Harp and Strings” and “La Mer,” by Claude Debussy.
Tickets go on sale 30 minutes prior to each concert. All seats are general admission (no reserved seating). Individual ticket prices cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors 62 and older, $10 for students, and $5 for children younger than 12. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the concert.
Later in October, adults and children alike will enjoy the annual Halloween Concert at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Oct. 29 in Boutell Memorial Concert Hall, NIU. The KSO will present an evening of Halloween-themed music, including selections from Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique” and John Williams’ “Harry Potter.”
This concert is free to the community. There will be trick-or-treating a half hour before the 5:30 p.m. concert inside the NIU Music Building. This concert is supported in part by Prairie View Dental, Sycamore, and the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation.
Season tickets can be purchased at special prices for the four regular concerts of the season. Season tickets cost $50 for adults, $35 for seniors, $35 for students, and $18 for children younger than 12.
