Program creation and Music Direction by Jonathan Miller
A command repeat performance — one night only!
His imagination fired by music, Frank Lloyd Wright changed the face of architecture forever. Hear the music of Wright’s own life—interspersed with his own words about music. Enjoy his favorite composers (including Palestrina, Bach, and Beethoven), turn-of-the-century parlor songs, Unitarian hymns, and music from his childhood. Chicago actor John Nygro will read from Wright’s essays on music and architecture. Slides of Wright’s buildings complete our portrait of this creative master, performed in the very space he called “my little jewel.”
