It’s a combination too intriguing to miss, especially considering that it’s free. Blue Man Group will perform with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra (CYSO) this Sunday at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
“Combining Blue Man Group’s hilarious theatricality with the youthful energy of CYSO’s talented musicians will make for a potent blend that is certain to offer a singularly exciting concert experience for audiences that night”, said CYSO Music Director Allen Tinkham.
Blue Man Group will perform teasers of well-known classical pieces from Khachaturian, Wagner, and others along with the orchestra. CYSO will perform an array of pieces from its tour to China, including Johannes Brahms’ Variations on a Theme of Joseph Haydn, op. 56a, Zhou Long’s “The Rhyme of Taigu” and Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra. The special programming will also include other audience favorites with an infusion of colorful surprises from Blue Man Group.
This Blue Man Group and CYSO performance event is free and open to the public at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park beginning at 6:30pm this Sunday, June 8.
