Darius Milhaud: Le Boeuf sur la Toit (The Ox on the Roof)

Felix Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4 (Italian)

Think you can’t laugh at the symphony? Think again! In the Chicago Sinfonietta’s collaboration with the Chicago Humanities Festival, the theme of laughter is explored when guest conductor Michael Morgan delves into the humorous impulses of composers past and present, from the sublime to the absurd. Guest bassoonist Lewis Kirk adds to the merriment on Dead Elvis. It’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!
