Marin Alsop Conducts the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Uniting Voices Chicago for 'Great Performances'

WTTW Chicago | August 21, 2023

Marin Alsop, a protégé of Bernstein's who conducted the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Bernstein's "Kaddish" Symphony at Ravinia that is being broadcast via Great Performances, has found inspiration in those words, as she told our sister station WFMT. "I think in the world in which we live, which can be quite violent, that’s a beautiful way to think about things," she said. "If we invest ourselves in creating beauty as opposed to destroying each other, maybe the outcome will be what we all hope for."

The performance also features Uniting Voices Chicago, formerly known as the Chicago Children's Choir.
