Mo Willem's

How can music change a young person’s life? See for yourself when Mo Willems’s story of chance comes to the festival following its world-premiere National Symphony Orchestra concert. The program is composed by Jessie Montgomery, arranged by Jannina Norpoth, and based on the book written by Mo Willems and illustrated by Amber Ren.

The concert is a part of Breaking Barriers, a new annual series that celebrates the diverse artists and leaders in the vanguard of classical music today and for future generations. Ravinia Chief Conductor Marin Alsop is curating the three-day inaugural 2022 festival around women on the podium with additional events such as film screenings and symposia. Learn more.
