For almost 65 years the Wheaton College Artist Series has been proud and privileged to bring exceptional artists to our local stage for your enjoyment. This year, we are excited to present one beautifully focused five-event season; just five great concerts in a single subscription package with an outstanding array of artists. Online ordering will go live on July 14, but you can subscribe now by downloading the 2014-2015 Order Form.
As a subscriber, you will also get to choose one BONUS event: Love Classical? Choose the Fischoff Gold Medal Winners, the best of today’s emerging chamber musicians. Love Inspirational? Choose the inimitable Ken Medema. Love singing? Choose a public masterclass led by the legendary soprano Elly Ameling. Love surprises? Choose Fledgefest featuring young singers and songwriters like Tyler Sjöström. Want to attend them all? BONUS events are only $20!
With this new format comes substantial savings. Our new five-concert subscription with a bonus concert is $35 less than the FULL subscription last season. If you were a FLEX subscriber last season, you pay no more than $15 extra to attend two more concerts in 2014-15. Subscribers also receive the Dining & Discount card, with discounts at more than 30 local restaurants and businesses.
In 1973, Joseph E. Fischoff and fellow members of the South Bend Chamber Music Society sought an innovative way of encouraging young people to pursue chamber music study and performance. The idea of a competition arose, and that first year, six ensembles participated.
We are proud to present the winners of this year's Senior Division Wind Competition. If you were lucky enough to last season's Fischoff concert (Project Fusion) you already know what an exciting event this promises to be.
