The Fox Valley Orchestra and the Fox Valley Concert Band Salute Stage and Screen

The Fox Valley Orchestra and The Fox Valley Concert Band team up for a spectacular concert, “A Stage and Screen Salute” The two concerts take place to help celebrate the July 4th week: Saturday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the Norris Cultural Arts Center, 1040 Dunham Rd., St. Charles and Sunday, July 1 at 3:00 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena in Aurora. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online at the Fox Valley Orchestra Website at www.foxvalleyorchestra.org or by calling 630-891-2525.

Both groups are under the baton of Dr. Colin Holman and offer a spectacular array of music from Mozart’s Magic Flute Overture, to Sousa Marches, to Broadway show tunes and much more. Dr. Holman knows how to please an audience and he has outdone himself for this program. “Collaboration is vital to success in the arts today, especially in these tough economic times,” says orchestra President, Jonathan Hauser. “It is a fantastic deal to get two great shows for the price of one,” Hauser says. Both groups are known for their outstanding musicianship and exciting concert programming.

A Gala Fundraiser for the Fox Valley Orchestra follows the Paramount Theatre performance. In the Grand Gallery of the Paramount Theatre, patrons can enjoy the music of a select group of Pete Elman’s jazz musicians, sumptuous hor d’oeuvres, a complimentary drink, and a chance to mingle with the musicians and the maestro. In addition, patrons have a chance to peruse the gallery and view artwork by local artists from the Aurora Art League.

Tickets are $40 and can be purchased on-line at www.foxvalleyorchestra.org. Or by calling 630-891-2525. In addition there is a raffle (also on-line). For $20 you get a chance to win a grand prize of $1000, a second prize of $500 or two 3rd prizes of $250. All proceeds go to benefit the Fox Valley Orchestra.
