Schaumburg, IL (September 23, 2016) – The Prairie Center for the Arts welcomes Camerata Chicago for a Sweetest Day concert on Sunday, October 16 at 3:00 p.m. Hailed as “One of the top five chamber orchestras in America,” Camerata Chicago, led by conductor Drostan Hall, presents concerts of great music featuring musicians of global distinction. For its special Sweetest Day performance at the Prairie Center, the ensemble puts aside any serious dramatic works to warm hearts with a variety of popular and classical works. The concert is sponsored by Graham’s Fine Chocolate.
This performance is a wonderfully romantic string orchestra concert filled with autumnal color with virtuoso soloists performing Atterberg and Svensden. 15 year old violin prodigy Amelia Piscitelli plays the Svendsen Romance.
The concertmaster Mathias Tacke from the Vermeer String Quartet will perform the Atterberg Suite for Solo violin, viola and strings with principal viola Rose Armbrust. Conducted by Drostan Hall, Camerata Chicago will also play Variations on Thaxted by Blumhofer/Holst, the Bartok Rumanian Dances and Warlock’s Capriol Suite.
