Artist Bio

Join the Chicago Sinfonietta for an evening of musical exploration with DEPTH, featuring renowned guest conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto and a lineup of works that delve into the complexities of the human experience. Witness the artistry of Prieto in the vibrant and colorful “Sinfonia India” by Carlos Chavez, where indigenous Mexican folk melodies blend seamlessly with the Western classical tradition. The Chicago premiere of Gabriella Ortiz's haunting and evocative “Kauyumari,” inspired by Huichol Indian mythology, showcases Prieto's expertise in bringing out the nuances of a complex piece. Then, immerse yourself in the vibrant rhythms of Juan Pablo Contreras' “Mariachitlán,” which blends traditional Mexican music with modern orchestral sounds for a truly unique experience. Finally, the concert concludes with Shostakovich's “Symphony No. 5,” a powerful and deeply moving work that reflects the composer's struggle to create art under the oppressive Soviet regime. Throughout the concert, the Chicago Sinfonietta will explore the depths of the human experience through music, showcasing the power and beauty of artistic expression. This promises to be an evening of music that will touch your heart and leave you inspired. Don't miss this opportunity to experience the Chicago Sinfonietta and guest conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto in an unforgettable performance.
