Chicago’s Grant Park Music Festival is expanding Project Inclusion, its professional development program for young musicians from diverse backgrounds in partnership with the Chicago Sinfonietta. The inaugural class of Project Inclusion’s Vocal Fellowship program will launch this spring with four Fellows: soprano Tiana Sorenson, alto Elena Snow, tenor Jared Esguerra, and bass Dorian McCall. The four singers will spend the month of June with Festival Chorus Director Christopher Bell, rehearsing and performing with the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus, including performances of Britten’s Sea Symphony and Roberto Sierra’s Missa Latina. Recipients of this year’s String Fellowships—now in their fifth year—will be announced in April. The Grant Park Music Festival takes place at Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park in downtown Chicago, June 14 to August 19, 2017. Carlos Kalmar is the Grant Park Music Festival’s artistic director and principal conductor.
