A Vision in Sound

The Chicago Philharmonic closes its 2014-15 season dedicated to the five senses with a celebration of sights in music.

The orchestra will perform the orchestral repertoire's greatest tribute to visual art, Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition," depicting an imaginary tour of an art collection.

Also on the program are Kenji Bunch's jazzy Symphony No. 1 — inspired by Roy Lichtenstein's cartoonish pop art — and Jennifer Higdon's "blue cathedral," for which the musicians add tuned wine glasses and bells to the symphonic mix. Before the concert, take your own promenade through a gallery of artwork inspired by Mussorgsky's music.
