Coming up in a few days, on Saturday, November 4th and Monday, November 6th, Chicago Sinfonietta will present two Día de los Muertos celebration concerts called: Regresar / Revisit. As the spirits return during the tradition of Día de los Muertos, Chicago Sinfonietta celebrates their past in this annual concert dedicated to the holiday. Join them as they recreate some of the audience’s favorite memories from previous Día de los Muertos concerts and build brand new memories together. This concert features some of Mexico and Latin America’s most celebrated composers, evoking and highlighting the music of their regions, along with an entrancing and chilling performance of Mozart’s Requiem, including a 70-voice choir (and a Sinfonietta twist)!
Edward Kelsey Moore will be among his Sinfonietta orchestra colleagues for these concerts.

Two counties in central Indiana have been thinking about (and talking about) Edward Kelsey Moore’s bestselling, first Supremes novel, The Supremes At Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat, which was chosen by Tippecanoe and White Counties as their One Great Read book for 2017. Extensive programming by the local libraries along with other community activities have included movie screenings; a photography exhibit; a book discussion at an old-style Indiana diner; several children and family events; a writing workshop; plus one workshop each on digital photo archiving and scanning your family memorabilia. And there were more than a handful of additional book discussions! All of these have taken place at locations in central Indiana during September and October — and all of it relating to The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat. It is truly an honor!
As one of the final events for One Great Read 2017, Edward Kelsey Moore will be reading from his work and discussing his writing and music careers at the Tippecanoe County Downtown Library in Lafayette, IN, this Saturday, October 21st, at 2:00pm. An author signing will follow the presentation. Books will be available for purchase. The event is free and open to the public. If you’re in central Indiana come and meet Edward!
