Sounds of Change

Music of the 60s & 70s

Music of Change

Sunday, February 19, 2017, Noon
City Winery Chicago (1200 W Randolph St, Chicago)

From Hendrix to Shostakovich, the transforming world spread its message though the music of the times. As some artists protested against war and tyranny, others broke the molds of established forms. Rock music was the voice of a generation, and the youth culture reveled in their newfound freedom. Join the Chicago Philharmonic Chamber Players in an uplifting, entertaining ode to this invigorating era!
