Muti Conducts Schubert Mass in E-flat Major

Chicago Symphony Orchestra

8:00 PM Thursday, March 22, 2018

The celebrated Chicago Symphony Chorus, marking its 60th anniversary in 2017/18, joins Riccardo Muti, the CSO and international soloists for a moving performance of Schubert's exquisite final Mass, written at the end of the young composer's life. “The performance of Schubert's Mass by Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will likely figure on best-of lists. Muti and his CSO forces put across the heaven-storming drama as much as the moments of consolation and spiritual introspection” (Chicago Classical Review).

Poetry in Grainger Ballroom starting at 7 p.m.
Poems While You Wait, a local collective of poets and their vintage typewriters, will provide patrons with a unique encounter with poetry. Order a personalized poem about a topic of your choice before the concert, then enjoy the performance and pick up your original piece of poetry after the concert.
