toughest area in city to park. Could not get into Millenium lot due to Blues Fest, so wound up in Grant Park garage. Coupon from Park Grill made $33 parking only $18. No street parking and avoid Friday nights unless you take public transportation. And now with summer, there is a fest a week in Grant Park and this really affects parking.

Description

CCM concludes its Signature Series season with a program that features every ensemble artist. Wagner’s intimate and emotional symphonic poem, Siegfried Idyll, was originally written for the composer’s wife’s birthday. John Stevens’ rich and cyclical work for brass quintet depicts the seasons musically in four movements. Brahms’ Serenade No. 1 is better known in its adopted orchestral version, but this is an opportunity to hear the beautiful and lyrical work in the chamber ensemble form for which it was originally composed.

Program:

Wagner: Siegfried _Idyll _

John Stevens: Seasons, a Symphony for Brass Quintet

Brahms: Serenade No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11
