Hear a live broadcast of Tuesday’s Rush Hour concert, 5:45 PM
Stephen Burns founded Fulcrum Point in 1998 to present new music in daring and imaginative ways. Over the years the ensemble has incorporated many art forms including film, movement, theater, visual art—essentially creating a fulcrum for artists, musicians, dancers and a number of organizations throughout the community. It’s been about music, yes, but Burns’ group has made it their mandate to share their work with the Chicago Public Schools, with museums and even with inmates at the Cook County Correctional Facility.
There are no stark and forbidding cell blocks involved in today’s concert, but instead the beautiful space of St. James Cathedral. Chicago composer Misha Zupko has contributed a new piece for this concert. David Schrader, a regular on WFMT, will be playing the organ at St. James. The program includes music by Bach and Alan Hovhaness.
