Fusion: Stronger, Together
June 5 @ 7:30 pm
Chicago Sinfonietta closes its 2020-2021 season with a finale that honors the voice of the people in its many forms, tracing the line of stories told across time and place. The orchestra welcomes back Grammy award-winning bassist and prized collaborator Victor Wooten for the commissioned world premiere of La Lección Tres, a merging of music and philosophy moved forward in exuberant bass lines. The orchestra marks the centenary of Astor Piazzolla’s birth with an arrangement of the catchy Suite from his Tango Opera, Maria de Buenos Aires, followed by Valerie Coleman’s musical portrayal of entertainer and activist Josephine Baker’s life.
This virtual event premieres on June 5th at 7:30PM CT and is viewable for 48 hours after the event.
