Live from Grant Park, Wednesday at 6:30 pm
Gabriel Cabezas played his first WFMT broadcast in 2008. The show was Introductions, a WFMT production that showcases Chicago’s young musicians (pre-college). At the time, Cabezas was a sophomore at New Trier High School.
Now, six years later, Cabezas has soloed with major orchestras and plays chamber music at the Marlboro Festival.
Wednesday evening Gabriel Cabezas performs a free concert for his hometown crowd at the Grant Park Music Festival. WFMT will broadcast the concert live, starting at 6:30 pm.
