Chicago Immigrant Stories II: Finale

July 22, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Greek saxophonist and composer Athanasios Zervas and Sones de México Ensemble join Orbert Davis and the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic for the culmination of this years edition of the CJP’s Immigrant Stories project. The concert also features immigrant members of Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, Argentinian pianist Leandro Lopez Varady, Bulgarian violinist Zara Zaharieva and Lebanese oud player and percussionist Suzanne Osman.

The series kicked off with workshop performances by members of the CJP with Athanasios Zervas on January 24 at the National Hellenic Museum in Greektown and continued with Sones de México on February 21 at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen.

The work now culminates with the world premiere by lead composer Orbert Davis of a full orchestra work formed out of this musical melting pot. The music will be the soundtrack to resonate across all Chicago citizens as they comprehend what it means to be ‘American’.

Free and open to the public.
