Chicago Sinfonietta has presented a concert to celebrate the birth and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. since its inception, as a testament to its mission of diversity, inclusion, and equity. This season, former Project Inclusion Freeman Conducting Fellows Kellen Gray and Kedrick Armstrong will helm the podium for a breakout performance. Plus, a spoken word performance of Dr. King speeches you won’t want to miss! Called “the city’s hippest orchestra” by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sinfonietta presents innovative concerts that defy the definitions of symphonic music.”
