Fresh & Fortuitous
Beethoven’s fresh Fourth Symphony Closes the Illinois Chamber Orchestra’s
2011-2012 Season

The Illinois Chamber Orchestra closes its 2011-2012 season with a Fresh & Fortuitous concert celebrating the beginning of spring as guest conductor and music director candidate Rei Hotoda, Assistant Conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, leads the orchestra on a fabulous journey featuring the works of Beethoven, Vaughan Williams and Ginastera on Friday, March 16th at 7:30 p.m. at St. Agnes Church in Springfield and on Saturday, March 17th at 7:30 p.m. at Second Presbyterian Church in Bloomington.

A fortuitous selection of fresh music showcases the brilliance of the Illinois Chamber Orchestra with the popular and entertaining Overture to The Wasps by Ralph Vaughan Williams, the dance inspired and virtuosic Variaciones Concertantes of Argentinean composer Alberto Ginastera and Beethoven’s vivacious and joyous Symphony No. 4, a masterpiece in its own right and a fitting conclusion to the ICO’s exciting season!

Applauded by the Washington Post as “talented and poised with strong potential” conductor Rei Hotoda is rapidly becoming one of America’s dynamic conductors. She has guest conducted orchestras throughout North America and Europe including the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Syracuse Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Weimar Orchestra and the International Contemporary Ensemble. As a protégé of Marin Alsop, Ms. Hotoda was winner of the 2006 Taki Concordia Conducting Fellowship, a fellowship created by Marin Alsop to mentor women conductors. Currently, Ms. Hotoda is in her second season as the Assistant Conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and from 2006-2009 she was the Assistant Conductor of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Hotoda studied conducting with Gustav Meier at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. She holds a doctorate in piano performance from the University of Southern California and a bachelor of music in piano performance from the Eastman School of Music.
