The Chicago Symphony Orchestra's (CSO) innovative MusicNOW 2015-16 series continues with a concert led by MusicNOW Principal Conductor Cliff Colnot on Monday, March 7, at 7 p.m. at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park. The new program titled (sub)text, which focuses on nontraditional uses of text and voice, is curated by CSO Mead Composers-in-Residence Samuel Adams and Elizabeth Ogonek.
Highlights from next season's MusicNOW concerts include 'The Wind in High Places' by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams, Jonny Greenwood’s 'Suite' from the movie 'There Will Be Blood', and the world premiere of Anna Clyne’s 'Postponeless Creature.'
The audience at a Chicago Symphony Orchestra MusicNOW concert is in for a vastly different experience than is the norm at most other CSO concerts. MusicNOW, curated by Mason Bates and fellow CSO composer-in-residence Anna Clyne, is the CSO’s nationally recognized and critically acclaimed new-music series.
