Chicago Sinfonietta pledges to promote diversity

·

CHICAGO -- Paul Freeman calls it "preaching the gospel of symphonic diversity." Freeman, the musical director of the Chicago Sinfonietta, sees the midsize orchestra he helped start in 1987 as more than a chance to pursue musical excellence. He sees it as a means to extend the reach of classical music beyond the realm of white musicians playing music by white men to white audiences.

A silent auction will be held with a portion of the proceeds going to the Hoosier Hills Food Bank.

·
