The Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra, an award-winning community orchestra, concluded its 51st season of great music.

ELMHURST SYMPHONY BROADCAST:
“Rich Ridenour Returns: Music From the Stage and Screen.”
Following a stellar Golden Jubilee season, the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra opened its 51st season with this spectacular concert. To kick off its next 50 years, the ESO welcomed back the brilliant pianist and showman Rich Ridenour, one of the most engaging entertainers to ever appear with the orchestra. Beloved by audiences for his artistry and the fun and charm he brings to the concert experience, Ridenour offered favorites from Mancini to Mozart and Ragtime to Rachmaninoff. The winning overture from the previous season’s Overture Odyssey contest started the show, and Stanger Audition winner Kiyoshi Hayashi, an outstanding young violinist, dazzled the audience in music of Wieniawski. Enjoy this encore broadcast!
