Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Overture: The Magic Flute
Kenji Bunch: Symphony No. 3, Dream Songs
Dimitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 6
Carlos Kalmar conducts the world premiere of Kenji Bunch's Symphony No. 3: Dream Songs, inspired by Native American culture. Mozart's playful overture from The Magic Flute and Shostakovich's enigmatic Sixth Symphony round out the evening.
Symphony No. 3: Dream Songs was commissioned by the Grant Park Music Festival with funds from the Prince Prize for Commissioning Original Work, which was awarded to Kenji Bunch and the Grant Park Music Festival in 2014. Additional support has been provided by Joyce Saxon and the Festival's New Works Fund.
