Chicago, IL --As part of the city-wide and nation-wide Make Music Day of celebration on the Summer Solstice, Susan Merdinger and Friends will take the stage in Ganz Hall at Roosevelt University as Sheridan Solisti Chamber Orchestra.

The concert program will include Ernest Bloch’s Concerto Grosso No. 1 for Strings and Piano (1925), with Steven Greene, pianist; Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.23, K. 488 with Merdinger conducting from the piano; Dvorak’s lively Rondo for Cello and Orchestra with Nazar Dzhuryn, Cello Soloist; Gershwin’s Summertime, arranged for Cello and Orchestra, and two contemporary works: Ilya Levinson’s American Landscapes for Orchestra and Aaron Alter’s Solar Rays for Flutes and Orchestra. The Concert will open with Franz Danzi’s Duet for Viola and Cello with Concert Master Charles Pikler and Principal Cellist Nazar Dzhuryn.

Sheridan Solisti Chamber Orchestra was founded by Steinway Artist Susan Merdinger in 2019, but has been dormant since then, in large part due to the Pandemic. The orchestra was founded to help promote its members both as soloists and orchestral musicians.
