The Illini Strings is the third orchestra at the University of Illinois. This string orchestra performs music from the classics to music written in the 21st century. Musicians in this orchestra are comprised of non-music majors from all across the Illinois campus. This ensemble gives one concert per semester.

Parry: An English Suite
Mozart: Divertimento in B-flat, K. 137
Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on “Greensleeves”
Bloch: Prelude from Concerto Grosso for string orchestra and piano obbligato

This performance will run approximately one hour and 10 minutes, and includes a 20-minute intermission.

Guests are invited to join Krannert Center in helping children stay warm this winter. Bring new or gently used coats, mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, and ear muffs for this season's clothing drive. There is a special need this year for large and extra-large coats for middle school boys. All collected items will go to the Champaign Unit 4 School District and Urbana School District 116. Donation boxes will be available in the lobby near Intermezzo cafe.
