A note from Rina Magarici, Latino Alliance Advisory Board co-chair

Dear Music Lovers,

The CSO Latino Alliance Advisory Board and Volunteers have started the year with a new boost of creativity.

March started on a warm note, as we celebrated International Women’s Day and took the opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of some of the Latin American women who have been part of the music world, either as composers, performers, educators and more. Just to name a few, Venezuelan pianist legend Teresa Carreño, who at the young age of 9 performed in the White House for Abraham Lincoln; Martha Argerich, born in Argentina and widely considered one of the greatest pianists of all time, and Mexican music educator and composer, Gabriela Ortiz Torres.

The highlight of March is a special concert on March 19, celebrating six years of the Notes for Peace program. Notes for Peace empowers Chicago families who have lost loved ones to gun violence to compose, record and perform original songs of tribute, and process their grief in their journey to seek healing.

We encourage you to secure your tickets for this extraordinary evening.

Rina Magarici, Co-Chair of the CSO Latino Alliance Advisory Board

Noche de jazz | April 25

Thursday, April 25
7:30 PM CSO x Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
9:30 PM Noche de jazz
Symphony Center

Reserve your spot for the April 25 performance of CSO x Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and the spectacular postconcert event Noche de jazz, co-hosted by the CSO African American Network and CSO Latino Alliance.

Prepare for an electrifying fusion of jazz and classical as two mighty orchestras present a riveting concert. Experience the magic of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, with alternating renditions by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and innovative jazz arrangements by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Both ensembles join forces for a captivating selection from Wynton Marsalis’ Swing Symphony, hailed by The Telegraph as “a journey through jazz history and the sounds of America itself.”

Following the concert, join the African American Network and Latino Alliance in Grainger Ballroom for a Q&A with Wynton Marsalis and conductor Giancarlo Guerrero, moderated by Symphony Center Presents Senior Director of Programming Jim Fahey.

Ticket availability to the postconcert event is limited! Tickets start at $40 and provide access to both the concert and event. There are two ways to secure your spot to this high-demand evening:
