Moody 'Trisagion' the latest addition to Chicago Phil and Visceral Dance's developing friendship
Visceral Dance Chicago performed with the Chicago Philharmonic Society March 1 at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts.

"Of particular note, here and throughout the concert, the oft-unappreciated viola section is mightily featured, with sonorous solos for the principal violist, Claudia Lasareff-Mironoff, in the second piece: Grazyna Bacewicz’s 'Concerto for String Orchestra' (1948). This was a piece I had not heard, or heard of. Indeed, Speck’s introduction of it went so far as to guess it had not been played live in the Chicago area until now."
