Music of the Baroque
with Conductor Stephen Alltop
“The Conductor and Leadership”
Wednesday, January 30
7 p.m. | Heller Auditorium
Free and open to the public
Francis W. Parker School is excited to announce the second year of the Joan W. Harris Visiting Music Scholar in Residence. This year’s partnership is with Music of the Baroque, a resident ensemble at the Harris Theater that has provided Chicago with top-notch performances of the 17th and 18th centuries for nearly 50 years.
As part of this partnership, students will interact with two internationally celebrated conductors—Music Director Jane Glover and Principal Guest Conductor Nicholas Kraemer—and a select group of Chicago’s finest professional musicians as they learn more about the organization’s history and mission, participate in master classes and observe rehearsals.
For the interactive and entertaining program on January 30, audience members, seated in the orchestra itself, will learn about the art of conducting and aspects of organizational dynamics, communication and leadership that relate to being a positive and inclusive leader in a democratic society.
All are welcome to join us for a celebration of classical music at Parker!
