Alice Millar Birthday Concert: An Italian Festival
50 Arts Circle Dr., Evanston, 60208 |
Stephen Alltop, conductor; Alice Millar Chapel Choir; Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra
Lively and moving works from sunny Italy make up this year’s birthday tribute to chapel namesake Alice Millar. Giacomo Puccini was only 17 years old when he composed his Missa di Gloria, but the work is full of memorable melodies and stirring vocal writing, the hallmarks of his mature style. Rounding out the program are two selections from Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana: the sumptuous Intermezzo sinfonico and exultant Regina Coeli.
Free parking is available in the parking structure just south of Pick-Staiger. Wheelchair accessible parking is in the same lot. Note that a university parking permit is required in this lot until 4 p.m. on weekdays.
The main lobby entrance for concerts is on the west side of the building (revolving and regular doors).
