Morehead conducts and plays López

Jimmy López

CUBE’s fall 2012 concert and 25th anniversary celebration featured Morehead conducting two chamber ensemble works by Peruvian composer Jimmy López and accompanying soprano Henriët Fourie in a performance of López’s song Viaggio a ti. The concert at Grace Church in Chicago was attended by the composer, who has been commissioned by Lyric Opera of Chicago to compose a new opera for the 2014-15 season, and by world-renowned soprano Renée Fleming, Lyric Opera’s Artistic Consultant. The chamber ensemble, which performed López’s Fiesta! and Avec Swing under Morehead’s baton, was composed of members of Chicago’s New Millennium Orchestra, CUBE members and guests.
