Mavis Staples / Regina Carter's Southern Comfort

8:00 PM
Friday, April 18, 2014

Renowned soul and gospel singer Mavis Staples’ smouldering vocals are as powerful and compelling as ever, well into the sixth decade of her career. The massive critical acclaim for her 2011 Grammy® Award-winning album You Are Not Alone, which will be followed up by One True Vine in June 2013, makes it clear that Staples “isn’t just a survivor. She’s a great singer who is best when she gets to press onward” (Rolling Stone). One-of-a-kind violinist Regina Carter opens with a celebration of her Alabama roots through joyful Southern music. Carter’s 2010 Symphony Center appearance “illuminated the questing intellect and joyous sensibility of her best work. First-rate practitioners such as Carter remain an endangered species” (Chicago Tribune).

Due to speaker placement for this event, patrons in the Terrace will not experience the same high quality of sound as in other areas of Orchestra Hall.
