Knox-Galesburg Symphony launches new summer community concert series with free recital

Posted on: June 9, 2022

Musicians from the Knox-Galesburg Symphony will present a free recital on June 11 at the Central Congregational Church in Galesburg, Illinois to launch the orchestra’s new community concert series this summer. Musicians Jena Gardner (French horn), Jill Marasa (clarinet), and Nancy Ohlbach (piano) will perform works by Beethoven, Saint-Saëns, Martinu, and Rochberg. In 2021, the Knox-Galesburg Symphony purchased two buildings on North Seminary Street in downtown Galesburg to provide space for administrative offices, community events, educational activities, and more; donations received at the June 11 event will support the orchestra’s move to the new spaces. Additional concerts in the community concert series will be announced in mid-July, when the orchestra announces its 2022-23 season.
