Rising Stars Concert
February 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Outstanding students from Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts are featured in this concert.
The students of CCPA study in the midst of Chicago’s invigorating arts scene, and acquire additional experience through internships with nationally-known music companies. They watch world-renowned conductors lead the Chicago Symphony, enjoy outdoor performances at Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, witness premieres of new works in Chicago’s thriving contemporary music scene, and see American legends performing at the famous Jazz Showcase.
Music is a calling, and preparing for a life in music requires an unwavering desire to achieve mastery of one’s craft. Music majors arrive on our campus with artistic desire, and leave with the skills and knowledge to begin a life in music. Studio lessons, recitals, chamber music, operas, and jazz combos form the nucleus of a performer’s training at CCPA.
From Avant-Garde to Woodwind Chamber Music, our students have the opportunity to participate in over two dozen ensembles. The alumni of CCPA’s Music Conservatory are part of a lively continuum of achievement, performing with major ensembles and finding success as educators, conductors, composers, and critics.
This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Oak Park Area Arts Council, and the Alphawood Foundation.
Suggested donation of $10 at the door, or tickets can be reserved online. Season passes for all 6 shows are available.
