CHICAGO STORIES

SIX NEW WORKS.
THREE COMPOSERS. 
TWO SHOWS. 
ONE CITY.

Chicago is a city of diverse people whose stories span the world and culminate here in amazing ways. In January 2017, the BBE commissioned three next-generation Chicago composers to create six new pioneering pieces based on the life stories of individuals, groups and their neighborhoods. Chicago Stories brings the city to life on a personal level, while offering an underlying melody of this melting pot of world cultures.
