Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

The Chicago Sinfonietta captures the duality of grief and joy intrinsic to the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead in its annual Día de los Muertos concert, where the orchestra is joined by Brazil-born, Chicago area-based guest conductor Lucia Matos, making her Sinfonietta podium debut, and Redmoon theater, bringing the music to life through spectacular visual accompaniments. The Chicago Sinfonietta performs Día de los Muertos twice: first, in Naperville at Wentz Concert Hall of North Central College, 171 E. Chicago Avenue, Saturday, November 15 at 8 pm, and then again in downtown Chicago at Symphony Center, 220 S. Michigan Avenue, Monday, Nov. 17th at 7:30 pm. Single tickets for Día de los Muertos range from $46 to $58 for Wentz Concert Hall and from $16 to $99 for Symphony Center, with special $10 pricing available for students at both concerts.
