Frequently Asked Questions for Sinfonietta Virtual Concerts -
The Chicago Sinfonietta is "the orchestra of diversity," a professional symphony orchestra which forms unique cultural connections through the universal language of music. Since 1987 the Sinfonietta has presented an exciting blend of musical and artistic genres, mixing the Classical and Romantic repertoire with bold contemporary works. In its explorations of symphonic music the orchestra shatters traditional boundaries through its collaborations: exploring synergies between classical music, dance movement, live theater, and other (non-classical) musical styles. In non-COVID years, the Chicago Sinfonietta performs regularly at Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville, IL, and in world famous Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center in downtown Chicago.
Bestselling author Edward Kelsey Moore will be the guest speaker on a virtual “visit” today, Saturday, February 27th, 2021 at 3pm ET, 2pm CT, 1pm MT, 12pm PT, through a grant from the Novel Conversations Speakers Program of Indiana Humanities and the Indiana Authors Awards. This event is hosted by the Hammond Public Library. The public is invited to the presentation using the Zoom app. Edward will talk for an hour about his writing process and read briefly from his debut novel. Time (and technology) permitting, he will also answer audience questions.
The Supremes At Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat was Edward’s first book, published in 2013. It became an international hit and a New York Times best-seller. The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues, a sequel to the first novel, was published a few years later. Edward is finishing up the creation of a new novel this year - with new characters.
Edward Kelsey Moore was born and raised in Indiana and received one of his music degrees from Indiana University. Before his writing was a success Edward put his music education to good use: he was a professional musician and teacher in and around Chicago for more than two decades.
Edward is looking forward to visiting with you this afternoon!
