Thomas Wilkins

Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Civic Orchestra of Chicago | November 8

The Civic Orchestra of Chicago, the CSO’s premier training ensemble of emerging professional musicians, returns to perform its first live concert at Symphony Center since March 2020. Led by guest conductor Thomas Wilkins, the program features Adolphus Hailstork’s An American Port of Call, an energetic piece that evokes a bustling seaside port, alongside William Schuman’s anthemic New England Triptych and Carlos Simon’s fiery tribute to Beethoven, Fate Now Conquers. Completing the program is William Grant Still’s beautiful and impassioned Symphony No. 1 (Afro-American), his most famous work, which blends blues elements into its orchestrations.
