There is little more basic to music than the beat. In fact, the drum was likely among the very first instruments created by human beings, and we continue to this day to beat out a pulse on almost any surface imaginable. This concert begins fittingly with William Grant Still infectious Festive Overture. Ricardo Lorenz’s Maracas Concerto follows featuring Alcides Rodriguez performing on this unusual solo instrument. The second half features Jennifer Higdon’s Percussion Concerto performed by CSO principal percussionist, Cynthia Yeh, and concludes with the audience joining with the orchestra in a starring role on the first ever DIY Estancia Dances. Yes, you will get to play along with our musicians in a fun-filled, raucous finale! 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Avenue, Naperville.
