Chicago Philharmonic Chamber Players Pay Tribute To Caf Music Traditions

The Chi Phil Chamber Players are ready to serve up another season of innovative chamber concerts designed for audiences of all ages and backgrounds in 2019, starting with Caf Culture on January 27. This one-of-a-kind concert in a casual venue includes folk-inspired music from around the world. Among the featured pieces are selections from the Johannes Brahms' Roma-inspired Hungarian Dances, a light-hearted compositional departure for the composer. Also from Eastern Europe's rich music traditions is Czech composer Anton n Dvo k's Slavonik Dances. Traditional tunes from Italy, Hungary, and Russia, tangos from Argentine tango nuevo composer Astor Piazzolla, and hits from George Gershwin's Great American Songbook complete the international program.

Caf Culture is modeled after traditions of live music in caf s and bars; likewise, City Winery offers drinks and a brunch buffet available for purchase before and during the performance. Doors open at 11:00am.
