Chicago Immigrant Stories: Millennium Park

June 14, 2018 at 6:30PM , Millennium Park

“Chicago Immigrant Stories” culminates with a world premiere orchestral arrangement of the project's Innovation Lab ideas, presented as a FREE concert in Millennium Park and featuring all the collaborating performers with CJP’s 60-member orchestra.  The collaborations and performances are led by Orbert Davis and multi-genre multi-instrumentalist Howard Levy, working with select musicians across the city – Kerry Leung (moon guitar), Sekou Conde and Seneke Ensemble (djembe and west african drums), and Kalyan Pathak (tabla percussion / vocals).  Each collaborating musician also brought in others to the project, including Menghua Guan (zither), Guanglong Li (erhu), and Hitesh Master (harmonium / vocals).   The musicians will also be joined on stage by dancers from Seneke Ensemble and Natya Dance Theater.


"Orbert Davis Explores 'Chicago Immigrant Stories'" (Chicago Tribune - June 6, 2018)
“The one thing that will be phenomenal is that the audience will see a representation of true cultural diversity — they’ll witness it, and they’ll hear it,” says Davis. "I hope that the end result will be that when the audience (members) look at themselves, they’ll see that they’re the same. Because the things that make us who we are, are behind our skin.”

Coinciding with the start of the busy summer season on May 19, Millennium Park will implement a security perimeter and bag check for all concerts and events that take place at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Firearms, knives and other weapons will be prohibited to ensure the public’s safety.
