Kalmar Bids Grant Park Adieu with Mahler

August 16

Talk about going out with a bang! The Grant Park Music Festival closes its 2024 season with Mahler’s mighty Symphony No. 8, Symphony of a Thousand, so named because of the many forces required to perform it. Carlos Kalmar, marking the end of his 25-year tenure as the festival’s artistic director, will lead the Grant Park Festival Orchestra, a children’s chorus directed by his daughter, Katja Kalmar, and the Grant Park Chorus. (Aug. 16-17)
