Sir Thomas Beecham at the U of I

May 17, 2014

Many famous conductors have given concerts here at the University of Illinois. In 1956, during the celebrations of the 200th anniversary of Mozart's birth in 1756, Sir Thomas Beecham came here and gave two concerts with the University Symphony Orchestra in April, 1956. The music was, of course, Mozart, and Sir Thomas also gave a lecture. We will hear some of these festivities.
