First concert of year set for Saturday

ROCKFORD – The Rockford Symphony Orchestra’s first concert of 2014 is set for Saturday at Coronado Performing Arts Center, 314 N. Main St.

The concert is the third in this season’s ComEd Classics Series and features violinist Lee Chin.

Chin has distinguished herself as one of the finest violinists of her generation, having performed to critical acclaim in more than 20 countries on five continents, from Carnegie Hall to Osaka Symphony Hall. 

As part of RSO’s season of “Music that Ignites Your Passion,” the January concert is entitled “Legendary Loves.” It will feature music about historical romances, such as Romeo and Juliet.

Tickets for this concert are available online at www.rockfordsymphony.com or by calling the Rockford Symphony Orchestra box office at 815-965-0049. Ticket prices range from $20 to $58. Student tickets are $7. 

The RSO is made up of 65 professional musicians who have 15 performances this year – including classics, pops, concerts for youth, and ballet – for an estimated annual audience of 30,000. The RSO was named the 2007 Orchestra of the Year in Illinois.
