IU Jacobs School of Music Summer Festival Orchestra
Michael Stern, Conductor
Joshua Bell, Violin
Dukas: L’apprenti sorcier (“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”)
Stravinsky: Suite from The Firebird (1919)
Ives/arr. Schuman: _ Variations on America _
Bruch: Fantasie unter freier Benutzung schottischer Volksmelodien (“Scottish Fantasy”) Op. 46
The brilliant young musicians from America’s largest music conservatory are showcased in a dazzling spectrum of colorful music, from Dukas’s “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” (best-known from Walt Disney’s iconic animated version in Fantasia) to the blazing hues of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite and Ives’s delightfully humorous Variations on America. Superstar violinist Joshua Bell, who earned his artist diploma from Indiana University, then takes the stage for the Ravinia premiere of Bruch’s lyrical celebration of Scottish folktunes and violin virtuosity.
About the Ticket Supplier: Ravinia Festival
There’s more to Ravinia than merely the world’s greatest music. For as many people who walk through Ravinia’s gate each summer, there are just as many ways to enjoy what they call “The Ravinia Experience.”
For some, it all starts with a picnic picked up along the way, followed by a hop on the train and greeting your friends at your favorite spot on the lawn. Gradually, day turns into evening, and from the comfort of your perfect lawn spot, it culminates in a great concert by candlelight as you gaze at the stars above.
For others, it’s a dinner reservation at one of Ravinia’s popular on-site restaurants followed by a casual stroll to the Pavilion, where you go to see and hear the stars on the stage.
Bring your own lavish picnic, treat yourself to an ice cream cone at intermission, or just come as you are and leave the details to them.
Since 1904, Ravinia has been Chicago’s “sound of summer,” a place where you can meet up with your friends, have a wonderful time and hear some of the greatest music in the world. They’ve got stars on the stage and stars in the sky, and it’s all within your reach. Enjoy!
