University Symphony Orchestra: Echoes of History (Nuclear Reactions Commemoration)
Saturday, December 2 at 8 p.m.

In a timely and thought-provoking program, the University of Chicago Symphony Orchestra presents three musical reflections on historical turning points of the last 100 years: Eric Ewazen's poignant Hymn for the Lost and the Living, written after 9/11; Krzysztof Penderecki's riveting Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima; and Dmitri Shostakovich's commanding and compelling Symphony No. 12, The Year of 1917. Assistant Professor of Music Jennifer Iverson will provide commentary on the Penderecki work as part of the evening's performance. Free admission. Donations requested: $10 general/$5 students.
