Alex Mauney

Alex Mauney has called Chicago home for just over a year and the city has provided one exciting challenge after another. This year has seen Mauney play the evil Corporal in Brecht's Caucasian Chalk Circle, playing harmonica for rockabilly group Old Grad Dad, teaching music for Chicago Children's Theatre's Camp Red Kite, and most recently reviving his own folk group Chauncey & The Beast.  Mississippi, Mauney's home, has a rich history of storytelling and with this new opportunity at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; he hopes to do right by all those who have gone before him.
