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.
