CHICAGO — Riccardo Muti returns to Chicago in June to lead the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) in three programs to close the 2022/23 Season. The two-week residency begins with a program featuring Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 (Great) and the CSO’s first performances of Lalo Schifrin’s Tuba Concerto with Principal Tuba Gene Pokorny as soloist (June 15-17). Then, Muti leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and renowned soloists in Beethoven’s Missa solemnis (June 23-25). On June 27, Muti and the CSO return to the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park — where Muti launched his time as CSO music director in September 2010 in a concert attended by more than 25,000 Chicagoans — to perform a free Concert for Chicago featuring music by American composer Florence Price and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. During his June residency, Muti also leads a CSO open rehearsal for invited senior, community and veterans groups on Thursday, June 15 as part of his commitment to creating access for a wide array of audiences across the Chicago area and participates in a postconcert book and CD signing after the June 17 performance at Symphony Center.
