CSO + Marin Alsop with Michelle Cann and Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra opens its 88th summer season at Ravinia with Chief Conductor Marin Alsop and two featured soloists, soprano Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha and pianist Michelle Cann. In an evening of all-American music, the orchestra opens with Aaron Copland's beloved classic Appalachian Spring followed by James P. Johnson's Charleston, highlighting this early jazz piano leader's influence and the iconic dance of the same name. Rangwanasha is in the spotlight for Samuel Barber's evocative portrait of a small boy in the American South, Knoxville: Summer of 1915. The program wraps in celebration of the 100th anniversary of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, with Cann at the keyboard.
