Zukerman, CSO Team Up with Hubbard Street Dancers for Four Performances


Byline: Bill Gowen

Something very special is taking place at Symphony Center next week, when conductor and violinist Pinchas Zukerman joins forces with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago for four subscription concerts.

The concerts will be at 8 p.m. Thursday, 1:30 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Jan. 24 and 8 p.m. Jan. 27.

This event, the final installment in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's 2003-2004 MusicPlus series, will feature the Symphony Center debut of Hubbard Street Dance, accompanied by Zukerman and the CSO in a new work titled "counter/part," choreographed by the company's artistic director, Jim Vincent.

Zukerman and the orchestra will also perform Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 and Haydn's Symphony No. 22 ("The Philosopher").

In creating "counter/part," a work for 10 dancers that was premiered in April 2002, Vincent was inspired by Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, which became the foundation of this new production.

"For me, dance has always been about movement, a visual representation of the music that has been its inspiration," Vincent said.

The dancers' costume design for these concerts is by Mara Blumenfeld, with lighting design by Jim Ingalls.

This is the final installment in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's 2003-2004 MusicPlus series, a group of four programs designed to showcase CSO partnerships with leading artists and institutions in the fields of dance, film and theater.

The CSO opened its subscription season with a collaboration with Tony Award-winning tap dancer Savion Glover. In November, "The Spirit of the Elizabethan Theater," a partnership with Chicago Shakespeare Theater, featured the CSO under the baton of Sir Andrew Davis and Chicago Symphony Singers in music inspired by Shakespeare.

On Thanksgiving weekend, the CSO gave sold-out performances of concert and film music written and conducted by Academy Award- winning composer John Williams.

In the past four years, the MusicPlus series has featured CSO music director Daniel Barenboim and the Orchestra sharing the Orchestra Hall stage with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra; performances of Igor Stravinsky's "A Soldier's Tale" in partnership with the Steppenwolf Theatre; and cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his Silk Road Ensemble in their acclaimed Silk Road Project concerts.

"Our collaborative performances are designed to add a new dimension to the concert experience," said Martha Gilmer, the CSO's vice president of artistic planning. "With the unexpected pairings of complementary art forms, we hope to take the familiar concert experience in an exciting new direction. We are looking to partner with artists of the highest level of excellence, artists who can truly complement the world-class talent of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra."

Tickets for these concerts are $14-$109. For information, or to order tickets by phone, call the Symphony Center box office at (312) 294-3000 or (800) 223-7114; or purchase tickets online by visiting cso. …
