Louise Farrenc

Featured Composer

  • Lousie Farrenc was quite famous in her time and highly regarded among her contemporaries, but her music slipped into obscurity after her death in 1875. We’re happy to give Farrenc the spotlight she deserves!

  • Aaron Copland was inspired to write Fanfare for the Common Man after hearing a speech by Vice President Henry Wallace in 1942. In the speech, delivered mere months after the United States entered World War II, Wallace talked of the need to ensure the “freedom of the common man.”

  • Rising young star Joshua Brown makes his Lakeview Orchestra debut on this concert with Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. Following his soloist debut with the Cleveland Orchestra at the age of 15(!), Joshua has gone on to perform regularly with orchestras like the Chicago Civic Orchestra, Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, and Rockford Symphony Orchestra, among many others. Chicago Classical Review praised his playing, noting his  "great poise and a silken tone……[he] is clearly someone to watch in years to come.”
