The Chicago Sinfonietta opens its 25th anniversary season Sept. 29 at with “Performance Art,” a concert featuring a unique collaboration with the Brooklyn-based, high-energy chamber ensemble PROJECT Trio.
“PROJECT Trio combines flute, cello and bass to achieve musical colors that you would never have thought possible,” Sinfonietta Music Director Mei-Ann Chen said in a press release. “Not only do they bring a distinct sound, they also bring a lot of movement to the stage—so much energy! It will be very fun to have them join the Sinfonietta for our Silver Anniversary season opener, and I’m so glad we can share the talents of this incredible group with our Chicago and Naperville audiences.”
The evening’s program features Johannes Brahms’ one-movement work “Hungarian Dance No. 5,” followed by three performances by PROJECT Trio both with the orchestra and on their own, including “Fast and Random Roads”—two works composed by its own members—and an unusual take on J. S. Bach’s “Bourrée” from “Suite in E Minor for Lute.”
The performance begins at 8 p.m. in the College’s Wentz Concert Hall at the Fine Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave. Tickets are $50, $40 and $10/children and students; call the North Central College Box Office at 630-637-SHOW (7469) or visit northcentralcollege.edu/showtix.
