Event description

Description

​​Michael Lewanski, conductor

​​​The DePaul Concert Orchestra studies and performs a diverse range of works—standard repertoire to new music, from the 18th to the 21st centuries. The orchestra's concerts feature adventurous programming designed to provide thought-provoking aesthetic e​xperiences that recontextualize well-known pieces, present unfamiliar ones and connect musicians and audiences more deeply to the music of their past and present. The Concert Orchestra collaborates annually with faculty soloists, the DePaul Symphonic Choir and members of the DePaul Symphony Orchestra; it also presents a joint concert with Ensemble 20+.

Michael Lewanski, conductor

DePaul's Ensemble 20+ plays living composers' music and 20th century works. Comprised mostly of DePaul School of Music performance students, the group rehearses, performs and studies a range of works from the early 20th century up to the present day. Ensemble 20+ collaborates with composers and performers of varying backgrounds: DePaul faculty and students, Chicago composers and national and international artists. Ensemble 20+ seeks to engage with the ever-widening and changing set of contemporary compositional styles and musical practices. It fosters a sense of collaboration and mutual respect among performers, composers and audience members; it contributes to a positive and creatively vital musical community. ​​
