Orchestra to conclude season in April

CLINTON — The Clinton Symphony Orchestra will feature three major German composers in April.

The music of Beethoven, Wagner and Schumann will be on display at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Clinton High School’s Vernon Cook Theater.

Conductor Brian Dollinger has titled the program “German Splendor,” for the 50-musician orchestra.

The Beethoven work is his Coriolan Overture, written as a prelude for a stage play. Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll was composed as a birthday present for his wife, and first performed at the bottom of the stairs as she awoke.

The major work on the program is the Third Symphony of Robert Schumann. He moved his family from Dresden to Düsseldorf when he was appointed conductor of the orchestra. He took a trip down the Rhine River to Cologne to visit the newly completed cathedral. The symphony is his reflection of the river, and of the cathedral.

This concert marks the end of the symphony’s 59th concert season. Remaining events in preparation for the 60th anniversary season include the annual “A Symphonic Affair” on May 31, and a free outdoor Pops Concert in Riverview Park on June 2.

Advance tickets for the April concert are available at Wagner Pharmacy on North Second Street in Clinton, at Fitzgerald Pharmacy in Morrison, Ill., and at Grummert’s Hardware in Sterling, Ill. Tickets also will be available at the door.

Admission is $15 for adults, and $5 for high school and college students.

Students through eighth grade are admitted free.

Program notes are available on the symphony’s website at www.clintonsymphony.org.
