Sinfonietta traditions meld with impactful social issues during one of the most stirring MLK Tribute Concert to date! Take part in a poignant musical conversation between CS Assistant Conductor and Project Inclusion alumnus Jonathan Rush and his sister, "The Voice" semi-finalist Kymberli Joye. The two will combine forces on Patty Griffin's "Up to the Mountain," arranged by Michelle Isaac and Jherrard Hardeman. Experience Joel Thompson's moving testament to those lost to police violence, "The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed." Restore faith and hope through the evening's uplifting remaining program: John Legend and Common's Academy Award-winning piece "Glory" from the film "Selma." Finally, experience one of classical music's most enveloping, emotional endings in Mahler's "Symphony No.2 (Resurrection Symphony)," featuring Chicago Sinfonietta with over one hundred choir members on stage for the stirring finale.
