Wood, Wind & Strings : Chamber Concert Series 2006-2007

Each year, The Morton Arboretum presents a delightful Chamber Concert Series at the Thornhill Education Center. In addition to my role as a librarian in the Sterling Morton Library, I also coordinate these concerts. Founded in 1980, the Series strives to present a diverse palette of performers, instruments and composers. There are three concerts remaining in the 2006-2007 season and good seats are still available! During the next three months, you’ll have the opportunity to experience:
  • Sunday, January 7, 2007 - Carlyn Lloyd and Jon Warfel – flute and piano duo
  • Sunday, February 4, 2007 -The Glorian Duo – harp and flute duo
  • Sunday, March 4, 2007 - John Mark Rozendaal and David Schrader – fortepiano and ‘cello

Each concert begins at 2:15 p.m. and is presented in the Auditorium of the Arboretum's Thornhill Education Center. After each performance, a reception in the adjoining Founder's Room offers the opportunity to enjoy conversation with the artists and fellow audience members in the splendor of the original library of the Arboretum's founder, Joy Morton.
Tickets ($18.00 – Arboretum members and $23.00 non-members) are available at the Arboretum’s Visitor Center, by calling 630-725-2066 or via snail mail at:
