Barbara Frittoli will join Members of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, led by conductor Mattia Rondelli for this exciting fundraising event for the University of Illinois at Chicago Department of Surgery. The program includes Beethoven Seventh Symphony and Berlioz Les Nuiz d'Ete for soprano and orchestra. This special event will use the fine art of music to raise funds for the special art of robotic surgery under the direction of Dr. Pier Cristoforo Giulianotti. Dr. Giulianotti has performed over 2,100 minimally invasive surgeries with over 1,000 robotic procedures. As a classical pianist and the world's premiere robotic surgeon, Dr. Giulianotti has sought to unite these two worlds by creating a new organization," The Art of Healing, The Art of Music". He emphasizes "Surgery helps the body while opera soothes the soul". Students and UIC Staff discounts available.
