Experience the beauty of Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp with guest soloists Jordan Thomas and Timothy Hagen. As part of this piece, the WSO is collaborating with Sharing Our Shore-Waukegan to show a movie of the four piping plovers that were at Waukegan Beach that volunteer monitors were keeping an eye on this summer.
