We asked some of our fabulous Lawrence University students to join us at the March 12 concert and share their thoughts. Our next reviewer is Malcolm Davis. Thank you, Malcolm!
I always enjoy going to FVSO
concerts, and the March 12th concert
was no different. The program had a great mixture of new, under-performed, and
symphonic classics. The opening work, Louise Farrenc’s Overture No. 1 in E
Minor was an exciting piece of music. I can appreciate knowing that when
I attend an FVSO concert, I will have left listening to music I haven’t heard
before such as Farrenc’s overture, or Jessie Montgomery’s Soul Force. This is
what makes the Fox Valley Symphony unique and out among its’ peers.
