The Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra's faculty recital was scheduled to be presented as a gift to the community at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, but the snowstorm has cancelled the day's activities. The recital will be rescheduled.

Original text:

Now in its third year, the recital offers one hour of musical selections by the orchestra's accomplished faculty members.

"This is a rare opportunity to hear local world-class musicians play together," said organizers.

The orchestra serves students from across the suburbs, and all proceeds from a free-will offering will benefit the EYSO scholarship fund. The concert is presented in Spartan Auditorium on the Elgin Community College campus, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin.
