Join us for the final performances of the Winter Quarter.
This March at the School of Music
Winter Quarter comes to a close with a variety of student ensemble concerts, including the DePaul Opera Theatre's production of Falstaff, along with student and faculty recitals, the DePaul Comunity Chorus and so much more!
Masks remain required for Holtschneider Performance Center audiences.
We recognize that both the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois have lifted mask mandates in public spaces in the recent days. At the same time, we will continue to require all audience members to wear masks inside our concert venues through at least our Winter Quarter performances listed below. Proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test, administered by a medical professional within the past 72 hours, also remains required for entrance to a concert as an audience member.
We want to ensure your visit to the Holtschneider Performance Center is comfortable, enjoyable, and safe. Note that our guidelines and the concert experience may be modified at any time, based on the latest public health, city, and university recommendations. Updates to our guidelines will be communicated through our concert emails and on our website.
Under the program direction of Harry Silverstein, the DePaul Opera Theatre presents the Winter production of Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff. The plot of this comic opera by Verdi revolves around the thwarted, sometimes farcical, efforts of the knight, Sir John Falstaff, to seduce two married women to gain access to their husbands' wealth.
This production will be presented in the new Sasha and Eugene Jarvis Opera Hall.
The African Ensemble, under the direction of Avo Randruut, fosters the understanding of music from Africa and the African Diaspora. Students in the ensemble come from many different programs, but they share a common interest in music of African cultures.
This concert entitiled, "Requiem for the Living" will be performed in collaboration with the Oistrakh Symphony of Chicago under the direction of Mina Zikri. This performance will include works by Henry Purcell, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Dan Forrest.
This evening's concert will include performances featuring the New Horizon's Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble, Flute Ensemble, and String Orchestra under the direction of Tom Madeja, Dalia Chin, and Mina Zikri.
Following an acclaimed all-Handel season of film, Haymarket Opera Company returns to live performances this month with Stradella's La Susanna. This dramatic setting of the biblical parable of Susanna and the Elders premiered in Modena in 1681, shortly before Stradella's death. Don't miss the Chicago premiere of Stradella's poignant score!
