Chicago Symphony Orchestra: You're invited: preconcert conversation with Reginald R. Robinson Nov. 2

Chicago Symphony Orchestra's
African American Network

On Friday, November 2, the Symphony Center Presents Jazz series presents a concert featuring the Branford Marsalis Quartet with special guest Roy Hargrove, as well as a world-premiere SCP commission written and performed by AAN member and pianist Reginald R. Robinson.

The CSO African American Network invites you to join us for a special preconcert conversation with Reginald R. Robinson in Grainger Ballroom at 7:00 p.m. Moderated by Columbia College Chicago professor Stan West, this conversation will explore Robinson's commission, which celebrates James Reese Europe, a jazz pioneer whose WWI "Harlem Hellfighters” regiment first brought black American music to France during the Great War.

This preconcert event is open to all ticketholders.
