When: Thu., May 27, 7:30 p.m. 2010

Musicians on the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, Roosevelt University, and cellist Wendy Warner join forces presenting classical, folk, and vodou-inspired music from Haiti, France, and West Africa. The program will include Haitian classical pieces by "the black Chopin" Ludovic Lamothe, the Vodou Jazz Sonata by Julio Racine, and vodou-inspired trios for fute and strings by Werner Jaegerhuber.
