The December concerts tease our sense of memory. We know Messiah very well, but few know that Mozart re-scored Handel’s Messiah for a much larger orchestra, making our performance an “often-heard rarity.”

 


 



Co-concertmaster David Buckley is soloist in the Second Violin Concerto of Florence Price, a prolific African-American composer that made her long career in Chicago, where her music was championed by the Chicago Symphony in the 1930s. Our collective musical memory is intimately combined with African-American music. Let’s always remember that. And let’s remember that we are a nation of immigrants, as we celebrate with the stunning music of Chinese-American composer Qing Qing Wang in the 2018 Thomas Nee Commission.
