Welcome to the 59th season of the Wheaton Pops “Sensational Summer Saturdays” concert series! We are excited to bring you another series of four concerts filled with a masterful mix of music played by the talented members of the Wheaton Symphony.
The 2017 program is all set, and we are confident that you won’t want to miss a single performance! Mark your calendars for:
July 8, 2017 – Broadway Tonite!
July 22, 2017 – Hooray for Hollywood!
July 29, 2017 – The ‘70s Show
August 5, 2017 – A Cole Porter Celebration
As always, we are delighted to share the stage with guest performers. Our principal flutist, Susan Crandall, will be a featured soloist during our first concert. For the final concert of the series, we will welcome vocalists Alicia Berneche, soprano; Alexia Armstrong, mezzo-soprano; Vincent McPherson, tenor; and Lorenzo Formosa, baritone, performing pieces from Cole Porter that are always audience favorites.
Now that spring has sprung, the Season Brochure containing all the important information regarding the schedule, venue and ticket ordering has gone out to everyone on our mailing list. The brochure/order form is also available by clicking here. If we don’t have you on our list, you can join by clicking on the Subscribe button below, or by calling the orchestra office at 630-790-1430.
It is wonderful that ticket sales have increased to near sold-out levels for every concert. But that makes it more important than ever to order your tickets early. Consider becoming a season ticket subscriber in 2017. Not only does that ensure that you have tickets for every performance, but you do it at a great savings: all four concerts for the price of three!
Take a few minutes today to join our email list. Please also consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our programming and ensure future seasons of “Sensational Summer Saturdays.”
For the lasting enjoyment of our concertgoers, every concert is recorded, and the CDs will be available for purchase at the end of the season. There will be an order form on the website, and forms will also be mailed to our list members. Your purchase is not only a great way to enjoy the Wheaton Pops all year long, but supports the orchestra and helps make our programs possible. The CDs make great gifts, too!
We look forward to seeing you this summer. Thank you for being a wonderful audience – we do what we do for you!
