This weekend, the Illinois Symphony Orchestra presents "Rock Me Amadeus" - Mozart's First Symphony, written at eight years old, and his brilliant Forty-First and final Symphony, plus Tchaikovsky's Neo-Classical Rococo Variations, reflecting his love of Mozart.  The concert, Friday evening at Springfield's First Presbyterian Church, features the ISO's Principal Cellist Ruth Marshall.  Ruth joined the Illinois Symphony Orchestra's Music Director & Conductor Ken Lam and UIS' (and the ISO's) Yona Stamatis for a preview of the concert.
