Chicago Sinfonietta: Common Ground: Collective Stories Virtual Premiere Saturday, October 17, 2020 at 7:30 PM CDT

Welcome to Chicago Sinfonietta's opening concert month, introducing our first program Common Ground: Collective Stories!

Last weekend, Chicago Sinfonietta musicians recorded ensemble performances for Common Ground: Collective Stories. We're excited to share this concert with you: from Copland's historic Fanfare for the Common Man, to Portrait of a Peaceful Warrior, a Chicago Sinfonietta world premiere commission by Artist in Residence Kathryn Bostic, to a moving work for string ensemble by Florence Price.

Jeff Scott's woodwind quintet arrangement of Piazzolla's rousing and crowd pleasing Libertango reflects our yearning for liberty during these challenging times. Closing the concert is a new string arrangement by American composer Jeffrey Briggs of Beethoven's beloved Pathétique Sonata for piano, which marks the 250th anniversary of the prolific composer's birth.

The virtual concert premieres Saturday, October 17 at 7:30 pm CDT!
