  • Chicago Sinfonietta opens its anniversary season with an unexpected and adventurous concert experience, a trademark of the orchestra’s programming for three decades, featuring two World Premieres as part of Sinfonietta’s Commissions by Women Composers Project. The concert begins with the World Premiere of emerging composer and violinist Jessie Montgomery’s Coincedent Dances and continues with one of Mozart’s best known piano works Rondo all Turca featuring the 10-piece Northern Illinois University Steelband who then joins Sinfonietta’s principal harpist Faye Seeman on her original solo composition Fayed to Blue before switching to the Caribbean sound of Lord Kitchener’s upbeat Pan in A-minor. The second half opens with the World Premiere of Grammy Award-nominated composer Clarice Assad’s Sin Fronteras featuring Chicago’s Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre and concludes with Respighi’s monumental symphonic poem Pines of Rome.
