Event Description

The celebrated Chicago Symphony Chorus, marking its 60th anniversary in 2017/18, joins Riccardo Muti, the CSO and international soloists for a moving performance of Schubert’s exquisite final Mass, written at the end of the young composer’s life. “The performance of Schubert’s Mass by Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will likely figure on best-of lists. Muti and his CSO forces put across the heaven-storming drama as much as the moments of consolation and spiritual introspection” (Chicago Classical Review).
