Chicago Sinfonietta Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute concert, Ask Your Mama
With words penned in 1960 by Langston Hughes that still resonate as if written by a lyricist today, amplified by a cast including orchestra, opera, jazz vocals, spoken word, archival audio samples, and video, Ask Your Mama is the single epic, multi-media jazz/symphonic composition that will mark our 30th anniversary MLK Tribute concert. Don’t miss your chance to hear this Grammy award-winning masterpiece (played live only 3 times in its history) in its full glory!

CONDUCTOR: Mei-Ann Chen.GUEST ARTISTS: Janai Brugger, soprano; Nnenna Freelon, jazz vocalist; Special Guest Artists TBA.
