2016-17 Season: Sound in Motion


We consider it a joy, honor, and responsibility to perform the monuments of orchestral literature as we connect with others in our community. Striving to reach an even higher artistic level this season, we will be assisted by the ideas of David McGill, former principal bassoonist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and current Northwestern University professor. The season’s title and focus, “Sound in Motion,” comes from his recent book (Indiana U. Press), which is quickly becoming a must-read for musicians. Over the course of the year, LGSO musicians will apply concepts from the book to the repertoire by reading, discussing, demonstrating, and learning from Professor McGill in rehearsal masterclasses.

Please join us this season!

Beethoven 1: Pathway to Genius

This concert is unique in that its first half is devoted to giving the audience as many tools as possible to dive into Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1. The second half features the entire symphony.
