Logan County to host Illinois Symphony again          Send a link to a friend 

[JULY 21, 2005]  Not many towns with a population under 20,000 get to host a statewide or nationally known orchestra; however, for the third year in a row, the Illinois Symphony Orchestra has agreed to play a concert in Lincoln. It could only be surmised that the symphony artists have enjoyed being so well received in Logan County that they're willing to make a repeat appearance.

This year's concert will be presented on Sept. 30 and will once again be in the Earl C Hargrove Chapel on the campus of Lincoln Christian College. This year's event will be co-sponsored by the local Lincoln Land Concert Association along with Lincoln Christian College and Seminary. The orchestra's performance is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

The unflappable Karen Lynne Deal is guaranteed to put on a performance that will keep you on the edge of your seat and with a smile on your face. A very interactive conductor, Deal allows the music to come alive and flow amongst and through the audience. She has an uncanny ability to package varied arrangements and mixes new pieces with old favorites as well as any music director can. If you missed the performances the last two years, you have missed a couple of Logan County's true highlights during that time span. This concert is not only appropriate for all ages; it's a sure winner to be enjoyed by young and old alike.
