MusicNOW: light readings

  • Harris Theater for Music and Dance 205 East Randolph Street Chicago, IL, 60601 United States

TICKETS: $26, Students $15

Light readings completes the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's 2015/16 MusicNOW series with excepts from Qasim Ali Naqvi's transcendent choral work Fjoloy and the world premiere of a MusicNOW commission by Mead Composer-In-Residence Samuel Adams. Following the postconcert reception, Pianist Vicky Chow will give a special performance of Tristan Perich's Surface Image, a sprawling work of profound emotional depth that Rolling Stone calls a "dizzying, disorienting 63-minute symphony for piano and 1-bit pixels."
