Event Description

The BBE joins forces with three of Chicago’s rising star composers to produce original works using the city of Chicago’s neighborhoods as inspiration and to tell the stories of the unique lives of our fellow Chicagoans. Featured neighborhoods/people groups will include: the Assyrian community, “glass ceilings” and executive minority women, and the Latin jazz scene of Pilsen. To complete this project’s originality to boot, the BBE brings old instruments that have not been written for extensively, or at all, in this century such as the cornetto, the sackbut, the baroque oboe, and many others. Unlike anything you’ve heard elsewhere in the city, this new music for Chicagoans by Chicagoans will take place Oct 14 @7pm on the UIC East Terrace and Oct 15 @ 3pm at the Green Mill.
