DePaul Symphony Orchestra

Cliff Colnot, conductor

An annual spring tradition returns for another year when DePaul Symphony Orchestra performs on the historic Orchestra Hall stage with DePaul Symphonic Choir. The evening opens with Johannes Brahms’ stunning Schicksalslied, an orchestral accompanied choral setting of Friedrich Hölderlin’s 1799 poem Hyperions Schicksalslied. Next, the DePaul Symphony will present Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, a piece influenced by folk melodies but retaining the vigor and severity found in his earlier work while also displaying incredible depth and passion. Tickets are free, but reservations are required.

Online ticket reservations have now closed.
Tickets are still available in-person at the Symphony Center box office.
