Program

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov: Russian Easter Overture
Arvo Pärt: In principio
Benjamin Britten: Spring Symphony

Description

Benjamin Britten pulls out all the stops in this massive ode to winter’s end. A rapturous work, Spring Symphony combines solo singers, orchestra and chorus. Also on the program, hear In principio, a riveting, pristine dreamscape by Estonian mystic Arvo Pärt. The concert opens with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Overture, a work that spins Orthodox chant into a barn-burning showpiece.

PLEASE NOTE

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the City of Chicago has cancelled all events in Millennium Park. All Grant Park Music Festival presentations for 2020 are taking place via digital media.
