Chicago Sinfonietta “Dreams” Big With 2018-19 Season Announcement Featuring Regina Carter, Twyla Robinson and More
The 2018-19 season, “Variations on a Dream,” is deeply inspired by Chicago Sinfonietta’s longstanding mission of diversity, unity and equity, interpreting the notion of “the American Dream” through varying individual and cultural perspectives. Along with addressing timely topics such as immigration and civil rights, the season also features an impressive repertoire of seminal masterworks, notable debuts, and plenty of star power, including MacArthur Genius violin virtuoso Regina Carter, soprano Twyla Robinson, and more. The concerts remain at Chicago Sinfonietta’s longtime venues, Symphony Center in Chicago and Wentz Hall at North Central College of Fine Arts in Naperville.
In the opening program of the 2018/19 season, Chen will join forces with Steep Theatre Company in “I.D.: Images of Diversity,” an exploration of the immigrant experience through a breadth of programming across cultures and centuries. The program culminates with a performance of the epic multimedia work “Ellis Island: The Dream of America,” which features seven actors, video, and a score created by composer Peter Boyer.
