Chicago Philharmonic Presents DARING DUOS, 2/12
The Chicago Philharmonic performs for the first time at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts with a symphonic program filled with stories from the music repertoire of faithful lovers and friends as expressed in Beethoven's determined Leonore and Gluck's Orpheus journeying to the underworld for his beloved wife. Also featuring in the program are two trumpet concertos from Vivaldi and Plog, exhilarating exchanges that echo each other's writing and have acclaimed trumpeters Bill Denton and Robert Sullivan pushing their instruments to the limits.
Jazz duo Zvonomir Tot and Victor Garcia perform pre-concert music adding to the trumpet extravaganza. Acclaimed composer Anthony Plog will speak before the concert as well.

Governed under a groundbreaking structure of musician leadership, the Society presents concerts at venues throughout the Chicago area that cover the full spectrum of classical music, from Bach to Britten and beyond. The Society's orchestra, known simply as the Chicago Philharmonic, has been called "one of the country's finest symphonic orchestras" (Chicago Tribune), and its unique chamber music ensembles, which perform as the Chicago Philharmonic Chamber Players (cp2 ), draw from its vast pool of versatile musicians. The Society's outreach programs connect Chicago-area youth to classical music and provide performance opportunities for members of the community. Founded 26 years ago by principal musicians from the Lyric Opera Orchestra, the Chicago Philharmonic currently serves as the official orchestra of the Joffrey Ballet, continues its decades-long association with the Ravinia Festival, and presents symphonic concerts in Chicago's North Shore region and, since May 2016, at the Harris Theater.
