Celebrate the birth and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with the Chicago Sinfonietta! For over 30 years Sinfonietta has presented an annual M.L.K. concert - a testament to the orchestra’s mission of diversity, inclusion, and equity. This year Project Inclusion Conducting Fellows Kellen Gray and Kedrick Armstrong will helm the podium — each of them a new talent to watch. Plus, a moving rendition of Trevor Weston's "The People Could Fly" featuring violinist Kyle J. Dickson. And incredible readings of some of M.L.K.’s famous speeches by Kenneth Woods. The Waubansie Valley Mosaic Choir will also be featured in several of the musical pieces.
Performances are Sunday, Jan 20, 2019 at 3 p.m. at Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Ave., in Naperville, Illinois, and Monday, Jan 21, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at Symphony Center, 220 S. Michigan Ave in Chicago.
Edward Kelsey Moore will be among his orchestra colleagues for these concerts.
Project Inclusion is Chicago Sinfonietta's groundbreaking fellowship program where talent and mentorship converge to further develop emerging musicians, conductors, and administrators. Each season Project Inclusion offers multifaceted, professional development fellowships to four orchestral and ensemble musicians, up to four conductors, and one or two arts administrators.
Now in its 31st year, Chicago Sinfonietta has pushed artistic boundaries to provide an alternative way of hearing, seeing and thinking about a symphony orchestra and is dedicated to promoting diversity, inclusion, and racial and cultural equity in the arts. Each concert experience blends inventive new works with classical masterworks from a diverse array of voices: to entertain, transform and inspire. In 2016, Chicago Sinfonietta was the proud recipient of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's prestigious MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions (MACEI). This award recognizes exceptional organizations that are key contributors in their fields.
This weekend Edward Kelsey Moore will be among the musicians of the Chicago Sinfonietta for
Sea of Light: Reflections on Diwali. Tap into the history, traditions, and above all, the vibrant musical influences that encapsulate the Indian festival of Diwali through a riveting juxtaposition of Indian classical music along with Debussy’s seminal, impressionistic masterpiece La Mer. Diwali is a Festival of Lights celebrated by Indian communities around the world. It represents light conquering dark, and good conquering evil.
In addition to the music concert, experience the celebration of light with Diwali related activities pre-show and during intermission. Sample the flavors, dance, and art of India, create a beautiful rangoli (colored-sand design), and capture memories with FOTIO.
Activities take place in the Wentz Lobby on Saturday,
and in the Grainger Ballroom at Symphony Center on Monday.

Das Wunder am Ende der Straße (The Miracle at the End of the Street), is the German title for the translation of Edward Kelsey Moore’s latest novel, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues. German publisher Limes has just released the book this week! It is the sequel to the first Supremes novel, which in German translation has the title: Mrs Roosevelt und das Wunder von Earl’s Diner (Mrs. Roosevelt and the Miracle of Earl’s Diner). The new translation is available as a hardcover book (Gebundenes Buch) and eBook throughout Germany and other parts of the world including stores and online merchants in: Switzerland, Belgium, Austria and more! It was translated from English by Babette Schröder.
You might wonder why the book's title in German is different than the English title? The publisher is continuing what they started with the first novel. Here's a question, and Edward's comment on this:
Why do the international translations of The Supremes At Earl's All-You-Can-Eat have different book titles?
EKM: Apparently ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT diners are virtually non-existent outside of the U.S., so the title has been changed for each foreign publisher.

For two performances only, Edward Kelsey Moore along with orchestra colleagues from the Chicago Philharmonic will be performing Danny Elfman’s beloved musical score, LIVE, to accompany Tim Burton’s 1983 film, The Nightmare Before Christmas!
The film follows the earnest-but-misguided adventures of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who attempts to bring the Christmas spirit to his spooky hometown. Against the advice of Sally, a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters – Lock, Shock, and Barrel – to help him kidnap Santa Claus. This stop-motion animated film is rated "PG".
Edward Kelsey Moore will be performing among his Chicago Philharmonic colleagues for these film events.
