Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) Music Director Riccardo Muti, in the wake of his own outreach concert at Morton East, paid a visit to River Forest next Wednesday, where he conducted an open rehearsal with the Symphony of OP-RF at the Dominican University Performing Arts Center (DUPAC) on Oct. 2. All current subscribers and ticket holders were invited to this special free event.
"He heard our CD of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and liked it," Friedman explained. "I asked him to do a rehearsal and he said yes. A miracle!"
