Hungarian favorites – and a gifted young pianist – highlight the concert of the Evanston Symphony Orchestra on March 16 at Pick-Staiger concert hall in Evanston at 2:30 p.m.
 
The concert features masterworks by two of Hungary’s greatest composers, Franz Liszt and Béla Bartók, plus the popular Second Symphony of Jean Sibelius.
