Chicago Composer in Rush Hour

St. James Cathedral

St. James Cathedral

Tuesday at 5:45 pm


Howard Frazin has done much to enliven the new music scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He organizes concerts in Cambridge; he teaches in Cambridge. He’s not from Cambridge. Frazin is a Chicago native, the son of a retired Cook County Circuit judge. Frazin grew up in Chicago, though his music has taken him from Aspen to Tanglewood to Banff. He’s had performances in Russia, Italy, and France, but not so much in Chicago.

Thanks in part to the sponsorship of the Honorable Julian Frazin (who has more recently been writing theater criticism for Chicago Lawyer Magazine), Howard Frazin will touch down in his hometown for a performance of his cello piece Some Thoughts on Good and Evil.

Chicago Symphony Orchestra cellist Brant Taylor performs with Winston Choi and Lyric Opera Orchestra violinist John Macfarlane on Tuesday’s Rush Hour Concerts. These concerts take place on Tuesdays during the summer months at St. James Cathedral. WFMT’s live broadcasts begin at 5:45 pm.
