Continuing its mission to present electrifying classical music performances, the Chicago Philharmonic showcases meticulous musicians and careful conductors culled from the city's vast creative community, as well as established out-of-town guest artists. Baroque baron David Schrader guest conducts "Going for Baroque," which starts with Bach's Brandenburg Concerto no. 1 BWV 1046, cited by devotees and loathers of lyrics alike as a quintessential Baroque piece and departure from Bach's earlier rockabilly sound. As the concert continues, Chicago Philharmonic piccolo player Alyce Johnson steals the show with her solo in Concerto for Piccolo and Strings in C Major RV 443 by Antonio Vivaldi.

Principal conductor and music director of the Chicago Philharmonic Larry Rachleff leads the legion of instrumentalists in "Rachleff Conducts Brahms," ending the orchestra's season with bravado and Brahms' Symphony no. 1. A cameo by internationally known pianist Jeffrey Siegel brings Beethoven's "Emperor" Piano Concerto no. 5 in E flat Major to life in a performance commanding so much attention audiences may forget to sing along.

Chicago Philharmonic

When the Chicago Philharmonic was founded in 1988, it was a tightly knit ensemble consisting of principals from the Lyric Opera Orchestra. Since then, it has blossomed into a collective of more than 200 professional Chicagoland musicians. But despite the increased size and bow-tie budget, the players have lost none of their precision or dynamic nature, prompting the Chicago Tribune to herald the group as “one of the country's finest symphonic orchestras.”
