Ifetayo Ali-Landing is a 15-year-old cello prodigy from Chicago who has won top honors at competitions and performed with the Detroit Symphony. She comes from a musical family – her mother founded the music school where she studies, the Hyde Park Suzuki Institute.

Ali-Landing makes her Chicago professional debut in a pair of concerts with the Chicago Sinfonietta next month – one of which is at Symphony Center.
