An American in Paris
Capturing the glamorous excitement of 1920s Paris, Gershwin’s
An American in Paris is a modern American treasure. It is
preceded by colorful, luxuriant masterpieces by his successors
Samuel Barber and William Schuman. American violinist Anne
Akiko Meyers, whose playing is “unspooled with impressive
refinement, emotional freedom and tonal depth” (New York
Times), gives the Chicago premiere of the Violin Concerto
by CSO Mead Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates, one of
today’s hottest young composers.

Regina Carter’s Southern Comfort
Mavis Staples
Renowned soul and gospel singer Mavis Staples’ smoldering
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 was 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).
