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.”

  • The Devil's Cabaret at Redmoon Theater
    One part puppetry, one part visual design, and one part theatrical arts, the collective known as Redmoon wants nothing more than to disrupt everyday life. Some of their biggest productions have included Twilight Orchard, which turned Columbus Park into a 17th century palace; and Astronaut's Birthday, a five-story-tall graphic novel rendered on the façade of the Museum of Contemporary Art. But neither of these matched the scale of Sink. Sank. Sunk..., the tale of a love-mad mayor that incorporated the El, the Sears Tower, and the Chicago River.
