About the Event

Thirteen magnificent musicians—wind players of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra—are coming to play one of Mozart’s most sublime works, rarely performed at this supreme level of artistry. Here’s how Amadeus playwright Peter Shaffer depicted composer Antonio Salieri recalling his reaction the first time he heard the Gran Partita: “Suddenly… an oboe, a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight! … This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing a voice of God.”


Following the concert will be a jaw-dropping opportunity for amateur musicians of all ages and levels to join the CSO musicians on stage to sight-read Mozart Wind Serenade in E-flat Major.  We are pleased to offer another Late Night Chamber Jam! This time for wind players – specifically oboes, clarinets, horns and bassoons.  All ages and levels are welcome to participate. Tickets to the CSO Winds concert are not required to participate in the Late Night Chamber Jam, but reservations are required for the reading.  To sign up, click here.
