5:30 Pizza and cookies* (Buntrock Hall)
6:30 Q&A (Grainger Ballroom)
7:30 Gershwin & Bernstein (Orchestra Hall)
An exuberant melding of jazz, blues and classical styles, Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F is an ideal vehicle for Illinois native Conrad Tao, “a personality-plus pianist with a fearless technique” (Chicago Classical Review). Bernstein’s beloved West Side Story dances include themes from the songs “Somewhere” and “Maria.” Barber’s soulful overture and Revueltas’ joyfully raucous Sensemayá frame the program.
*Refreshments are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.
