Marin Alsop conducts the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Children’s Choir in this beautiful concert.
Few female conductors have achieved such an acclaimed career as Marin Alsop. In this concert she leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Children’s Choir in a unique program of Jewish music; Contemporary composer Osvaldo Golijov’s Rose of The Winds, and Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No.3, Kaddish. Osvaldo’s piece is a magnificent showcase of unique instruments including the gaita (Galician bagpipes), the kamancheh (an Iranian bowed instrument), and the shofar, an instrument made from rams’ horns, traditionally sounded on significant Jewish holidays.
