June 14 - "Chicago Immigrant Stories" - full orchestral premiere in Millennium Park
From January 2018 – to May 2018, multi-genre artists Howard Levy and Orbert Davis will seek out three collaborations with culturally specific musicians/composers representing the rich musical cultures of Chicago’s distinct immigrant communities.
These collaborations are part of the “CJP Innovation Lab” series - a performance and workshop series to forge the most ground-breaking, genre-busting artistic collaborations between small groups of musicians and composers.
“Chicago Immigrant Stories” will culminate on June 14, 2018 with a world premiere orchestral arrangement of Innovation Lab ideas, presented as a FREE concert in Millennium Park.
