We’re partnering with Orbert Davis and the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic for a special free concert in Millennium Park! TPMS Voice students will perform with students from across the city in the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Jazz Academy Youth Choir. Vocalist Dee Alexander and acclaimed jazz trumpet player Orbert Davis will join them onstage!
The concert will honor Nelson Mandela’s centennial year, as Chicago Jazz Philharmonic reprises “Hope in Action,” a monumental work which premiered in 2008 as part of a worldwide celebration of Mandela’s 90th birthday. The composition weaves jazz and classical music with African rhythms and narration from Mandela’s speeches.
