A two-time winner of the Illinois Council of Orchestras’’ Orchestra of the Year award, Ars Viva thrills ears with musical programs expertly curated by veteran Maestro Alan Heatherington. “A Sunday Serenade” kicks off with Antonín Dvořák’s Serenade for Winds, centered around delicate woodwind melodies and boasting a sweeping finish more powerful than a locomotive with a smokestack full of protein shake. Mozart’s Serenade no. 12 weaves darker tunes together with contrapuntal harmonies, and Johannes Brahms’s Serenade no. 2 showcases the monumental composer’s lighter side with charming, high-energy euphonies. Before each piece, Heatherington dons a square academic cap and shares his symphonic sagacity with audiences, providing background on the tunes and their creators.
