Chicago Sinfonietta: Annual Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Mei-Ann Chen leads her second Wentz Concert Hall tribute to the civil rights leader with help from Metropolitan Opera clarinetist Anthony McGill and acclaimed vocalist Robert Sims. "The Oak" by Florence Price, the first black woman in the United States to be recognized as a symphonic composer, opens the concert and the award-winning Waubonsie Valley High School Mosaic Choir celebrates the global impact of Dr. King's message. The program for the evening includes Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings," Aaron Copland's "Clarinet Concerto," Obo Addy's "Wawshishijay" and arrangements of gospel and spiritual songs.
