This past Saturday (Oct 15) Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra opened their 51st season with pianist and entertainer Rich Ridenour conducting “Music from the Stage and Screen.” In coordination with ESO’s opening night event, THS created and hosted a special 1 day only exhibit, which was displayed in the lobby.  The exhibit included some 20 objects from the archives, a dozen text panels, and numerous photographic prints.

Executive Director Richard Sklenar and Archive Director Kathy McLeister were on hand to answer questions and mingle with the attendees.  An estimated 600 people turned out for the event.
