Copy of Grant Park Music Festival – Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony

  • Jay Pritzker Pavilion 201 East Randolph Street Chicago, IL, 60601 United States (map)

Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony set the standard for that specifically British symphonic-choral texture and is an excellent vehicle for the opening weekend of the Grant Park Music Festival.   The soloists Sara Jakubiak, soprano and David John Pike, join the exceptional chorus and orchestra under the direction of Carlos Kalmar. The program also includes orchestral selections from Britten's Peter Grimes.  

The pre-concert lecture begins at 5:30 in the Family Fun Tent on the west end of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.
