Wynton Marsalis: Violin Concerto
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Ave verum corpus
Gabriel Fauré: Cantique de Jean Racine
Francis Poulenc: Gloria

Description

Guest conductor Ludovic Morlot takes the reins of the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus for a feast of choral masterpieces, including the achingly beautiful Ave verum corpus by Mozart, the evocative setting of the hymn Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Fauré, and the spellbinding Gloria of Francis Poulenc. Also on the program, violin virtuoso and Chicago native Tai Murray plays the Festival premiere of the Violin Concerto by New Orleans jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. The Festival also welcomes the debut of another New Orleans native, soprano Lindsey Reynolds.
