Description

The Grant Park Orchestra welcomes the sensational young conductor Gemma New for Tchaikovsky's thumping Piano Concerto No. 1. The program includes American composer Samuel Barber's late-Romantic Symphony No. 1 and a piece inspired by the very skyline that lends so much majesty to the Festival's environs — Vivian Fung's Aqua, written after the skyscraper of the same name designed by Chicago architect Jeanne Gang.
