Lights, Camera, MUSIC!
A formal invitation to MORE LIFE, July 16th
from Chicago President and CEO Blake-Anthony Johnson
Chicago Sinfonietta is proud to be a part of Chicago. The City of Chicago is lauded as the number one, most-diversified economy among the largest U.S metropolitan districts* and there is a reason for this! Chicago’s creative industries (arts & culture) not only are a key part of the collective economic body, but we are the connective tissue that supports, protects, and gives structure to our world-class city.
Beyond Chicago Sinfonietta, the city of Chicago has dominated the scores of recent films. Both Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings franchises utilized talent nurtured by the city of Chicago’s nationally acclaimed film score composition & recording collegiate programs, not to mention Chicago being home to some of the biggest living legends in the industry – Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock. Chicago Sinfonietta’s industry – the TV, Film, & Music industry, is just one of the many connective tissues that supports, protects, and gives structure to this word-class city.
