See the Day of the Dead concert in Chicago
From 29 October 2012 To 29 October 2012Address
Harris Theatre for Music & Dance, 205 East Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60601, United States
Chicago is a city with a great mixture of cultures and customs and some of the most prestigious entertainment venues in the city reflect this in their calendars.
On November 1st, Harris Theatre will host a special concert to celebrate the Mexican Day of the Dead.
The Dia de los Muertos performance will feature the likes of Manuel de Falla's El Amor Brujo and Ritual Fire Dance, Astor Piazzolla's Adios Nonino and Chapultepec from Carlos Chavez.
Uruguayan conductor Gisele Ben-Dor will be joined by bandoneon master Raul Jaurena.
The show gets underway at 7:30 p.m. CDT, so it could be a late finish.
With this in mind, it could be a good idea to stay at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago, as it is located very close to the theatre.
The 1.7-mile distance between the two can be covered in just six minutes, so a taxi there and back will not be too expensive.
