This event is in the past - Thu 24 Jan 2019
Join us for the second year of “Chicago Immigrant Stories” where CJP’s artistry of cross-genre collaborations meld with the musical culture of some of Chicago’s most diverse immigrant communities and musicians!
Chicago Jazz Philharmonic's artistry of cross-genre collaborations will meld with the musical culture of some of Chicago’s immigrant communities, in a series of small group “Innovation Lab” workshop performances that will culminate in a large orchestral event at Millennium Park in Summer 2019.
The collaborations will be led by Orbert Davis working with select musicians across the city, and supported by CJP orchestra musicians including Leandro Lopez Varady (pianist from Argentina) and Zara Zaharieva (violinist from Bulgaria).
This collaboration with Greek saxophonist and composer, Athanasios Zervas, will be the first of the 2019 series.
