Please join us – virtually, for the time being, as the DSO musicians explain more about the music we were scheduled to perform..
Thank you so much for supporting the DuPage Symphony Orchestra.
DSO violist Andy Dogan provides an introduction to Ralph Vaughan Williams’ mellifluous Symphony No. 2, ‘A London Symphony,’ which the DuPage Symphony had planned to perform on its opening concert of the 2020-21 season in October. Get an insider’s look into this beautiful piece with Andy’s guidance, and then enjoy the whole symphony with one of the recommended audio clips below.
Andy Dogan has played viola (and, very occasionally, violin) in the DuPage Symphony since February 2000, and was the founding Music Director and Conductor of the Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra from 2001-2010. A licensed architect and interior designer, Andy is a Principal with Williams Architects in Itasca, leading the firm’s national public library and cultural arts design practice. In addition to the design of several new and remodeled suburban libraries (including all three of Naperville Public Library’s buildings), he led the design of the recently completed bandshell at Memorial Park in Wheaton, and is currently working on a new outdoor performance venue for the Village of Oswego. His interests outside of music include travel with his family, standup comedy, baseball, and airplanes. Andy resides in Elgin with his wife Julie (also a former DSO violist) and daughter Alayna.
