This Sunday and Monday Chicago Sinfonietta celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The orchestra’s traditions meld with impactful social issues for two of the most stirring MLK Tribute Concerts ever!
Take part in a poignant musical conversation between Sinfonietta Assistant Conductor Jonathan Rush and his sister, "The Voice" semi-finalist Kymberli Joye. The two will combine forces on Patty Griffin’s Up to the Mountain.
Experience Joel Thompson’s moving testament to those lost to police violence, The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed. Then, restore faith and hope with the evening’s uplifting remaining program: John Legend and Common’s Academy Award-winning, Glory, from the film Selma, and one of classical music’s most enveloping, emotional endings in Mahler’s Symphony No.2 -Resurrection, featuring Chicago Sinfonietta alongside two Chicago area choirs!
Edward Kelsey Moore will be performing among his Sinfonietta colleagues.
