CSO MusicNOW: Perspectives
Oct 24, 2022
Order now


Marking both the start of the 25th season of CSO MusicNOW and its return to Symphony Center, Mead Composer-in-Residence Jessie Montgomery and musicians from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra unite to perform works by kindred spirits Alvin Singleton and Carlos Simon. Among the works featured are Singleton’s experimental and improvisational Be Natural for three bowed stringed instruments and Simon’s whimsical and wildly syncopated Lickety Split for cello and piano. Though stylistically different, the program highlights the composers’ shared influences through their own unique lenses.
