Chicago Symphony Orchestra dedication to slain Chicago kids

Included in last weeks program,
Brahms's A German Requiem is music of consolation, written to comfort in times of loss. Violence among youth in Chicago has become a central issue within our communities.

In response, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and Music Director Designate Riccardo Muti dedicate these performances of Brahms's A German Requiem to the memory of Chicago youth who have lost their lives to senseless acts of violence and to those left behind.
At least CSO notices...
