November brings conductor candidate finalist Alastair Willis to the IPO stage. Grammy-nominated Willis opens the program with vivid musical pictures from Borodin's 1880 work representing the Russian troops and the people of the steppe. American pianist William Wolfram then joins the orchestra for Tchaikovsky's famous first piano concerto, among the all-time favorites with audiences around the world.  The evening continues with Bartok's dramatic Concerto for Orchestra, a dazzling orchestral showpiece that will display the IPO's virtuosity.
 
Maestro Alastair Willis is the Grammy-nominated former Music Director of the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, as well as a Guest Conductor for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Silk Road Ensemble (with Yo-Yo Ma) & others. Read his full bio!
