Elmhurst Symphony Concert: Classical DelightsThe Elmhurst Symphony Concert: Classical Delights highlights some favorite compositions by Mozart. His Symphony No. 41 in C Major, also known as the “Jupiter Symphony,” is critically regarded as one of the greatest symphonies in all of classical music. Mozart’s Concerto for Violin No. 5 in A major, also known by its nickname, the “Turkish Concerto,” will highlight the formidable talent of Jasmine Lin. Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 1 in D Major, which the composer referred to as his “Classical Symphony,” rounds out the evening’s program.

Guest soloist and Chicago native Jasmine Lin began studying the violin at the age of four. She has performed throughout the United States and internationally, and is a founding member of the acclaimed Formosa Quartet. As part of the Chicago Chamber Musicians, Lin performed on the group’s Grammy-nominated CD of works by Mozart for string and wind instruments. She’s a faculty member at Roosevelt University.
