Coming up next Friday, and the following Monday, are the final concerts for Chicago Sinfonietta’s season, with the title: Rightness in the Rhythm. Syncopate, bounce, and swing your way through a century of music that reveals the connections between jazz and classical…from ragtime to Rhapsody in Blue and beyond! Just as Sinfonietta’s season began with virtuosic piano performances, it comes full circle with a final flurry of incandescent playing courtesy of the Marcus Roberts Trio including the Trio’s own spin on Rhapsody in Blue that is injected with improvisation -- making it unique each time it is performed!
Edward Kelsey Moore will be among his Sinfonietta orchestra colleagues for these concerts.
