5th Wave Collective

5th Wave Collective presents Orchestral Evolutions
Thursday, June 13, 2019 | 7:00 p.m.
Mary Patricia Gannon Concert Hall

Orchestral Evolutions marks the finale of our inaugural season, and features Amy Beach's Magnificient Gaelic Symphony. The full symphony orchestra will also perform our first ever juried Call for Scores winner, as well as pieces by Rene Orth and Errollyn Wallen. Orth's Blur was written in memory of former DePaul students Alex Greene and Ben Darneille, who were tragically killed in a car accident in 2015. Through Wallen's Mighty River this concerts connects full circle to our season opener back in September 2018. Both Errollyn Wallen and Florence Price utilized some of the same spirituals, Wallen evolving them for the modern concert hall.

Windy City Performing Arts was incorporated in 1983 as an independent not-for-profit umbrella organization for Windy City Gay Chorus, Aria: Windy City Women’s Ensemble (later renamed to Windy City Treble Quire), Unison: Windy City Lesbian and Gay Singers, and Windy City Slickers. (Unison and Windy City Slickers are currently on hiatus.)

Each ensemble in WCPA performs a variety of musical styles from classical to pop. We pride ourselves on musical excellence regardless of the style of music. The choruses have a history of performing major choral works including special commissioned pieces.
