Civic Orchestra of Chicago at Kenwood Academy: Dreams and Reveries

5015 S. Blackstone Avenue

Get your tickets now – Sunday, May 14 at 2 p.m. – a perfect post-brunch family activity! This is an amazing opportunity to experience the Civic Orchestra of Chicago right in your own backyard for free! And it will be extra special because students from Kenwood will be performing side-by-side with Civic Orchestra musicians. “Ken-David Masur conducts a dream sequence of pieces. Berlioz’s feverish portrait of an obsessed lover’s opium dream comes complete with a whirling ballroom scene, cackling witches and a slashing guillotine. Anna Clyne’s Masquerade evokes the 18th-century promenade concerts held in London’s pleasure gardens.”


Free concert at Kenwood Academy High School
