Program Notes

Description

Grant Park Chorus Director Christopher Bell has a reputation for donning the red, white and blue during our annual Independence Day Salute, but if you've ever heard him speak, you know his roots are green.  This week, Belfast native Christopher Bell brings the spirit of the Emerald Isle to the renowned Grant Park Chorus for a lineup of beautiful choral arrangements of traditional Irish folksongs, as well as a set of breathtaking sacred works by Charles Villiers Stanford.
