Gathering: A Sesquicentennial Musical Celebration

To mark a historical milestone in our university’s history, a special Sesquicentennial tour will visit Chicago, New York, and Champaign-Urbana in the spring of 2018. The concerts will be performed by two of the school’s flagship ensembles. The University of Illinois Wind Symphony and Chamber Singers, led by Director of Bands Dr. Stephen Peterson and Director of Choral Activities Dr. Andrew Megill, will be joined by soloists Nathan Gunn, Todd Payne, and Yvonne Redman for the debut of a newly commissioned work titled Gathering. Gathering is being created collaboratively between composer Dominick DiOrio and Professor Emeritus Richard Powers.
