Moraine Valley Orchestra

Free, no tickets required.

While not all the composers on our Spring Concert are from the 21st century, the MVO aligns its Spring concert repertoire with Moraine Valley’s One-Book One-College “Disability Visibility: First-person stories from the 21st Century”.  The MVO concert will include music by composers who suffered from blindness, deafness, malformities, depression and schizophrenia: Beethoven, Delius, Bach, Molly Joyce, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and “The Pinball Wizard” all faced adversity. Through the centuries, these musicians have been put on a pedestal or just as easily, tossed aside while dealing with their afflictions.
