You can't get any better food than you can at Miller's Pub and Restaurant, just a couple blocks down, on Wabash, and they are open VERY late! No need to rush!

Description

Gabriel Faure:_ Pavane_ Opus 50 Hale Smith: Four Negro Spirituals

  Gwendolyn Brown, alto

  Jonita Lattimore, soprano

  Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 Chicago Sinfonietta’s annual tribute concert to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is a celebratory mix of spirituals, dance, and Beethoven’s majestic Ninth Symphony. Maestro Paul Freeman opens the tribute to the legacy of the visionary leader with Faure’s serene masterpiece and follows with the power of spirituals and their deep well of faith.

The Northwestern University Symphonic Choir joins the Sinfonietta on Beethoven’s Ninth, with its celebratory Ode to Joy, under the baton of the rising young conductor Kazem Abdullah and accompanied by a world premiere work by Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre.
