On Sunday, the Music Director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will hold a discussion with an eminent musicologist who is also the President of the University of Chicago for an evening entitled “Daniel Barenboim in Conversation with Don Randel.” The event will take place in the International House Assembly Hall, 1414 E. 59th st. at 7 p.m. this Sunday, May 23. President Randel chaired the Music Department at Cornell University, edited The New Harvard Dictionary of Music, and ranges in his scholarly interests from French and Spanish music in the Middle Ages and Renaissance to Latin pop and jazz today. Barenboim’s musical career began with his first concert at age seven, has taken him to global prominence as a pianist, conductor and chamber musician, and includes over three decades of performance with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. A reception will follow immediately.

The event is free and open to the public. Ample parking is available nearby. Persons with disabilities may request assistance in advance from Jennifer Horslev at 773-702-8369
