Chicago Sinfonietta UNAPOLOGETIC / 8PM at Wentz Concert Hall – 171 E Chicago Ave. Naperville, IL 60540 / $17-67 / Celebrate the unapologetic wonder of women during our March concert. Opening the concert, Tania Leon’s work, “Stride” – awarded the 2021 Pulitzer Prize – was originally commissioned as part of a project to commemorate the historic 19th Amendment that gave American women the right to vote and is inspired by the pioneering feminist Susan B. Anthony. Next on the program is one of the historic Florence Price works that was discovered in an abandoned house in Illinois, “Violin Concerto No. 2.” This rarely performed work is brought to the stage with the esteemed violinist Rachel Barton Pine. The second half of the concert features “Scheherazade,” a symphonic masterwork inspired by the well-known fairytale of a heroine who changed fate through her wisdom and courage. A truly epic showcase of musicality and spirit that all will enjoy. Tickets at finearts.northcentralcollege.edu.
