About the Performance

Inspired by the vision of Chief Conductor Marin Alsop, Ravinia’s Reach Teach Play brings together more than 100 students from around the world for the second National Seminario Ravinia. Taki Alsop Award recipient Jessica Altarriba is the Lead Seminario Conductor alongside Alsop with musicians from the National Orchestral Institute in a concert promoting learning and community alongside performance. The Seminario students and NOI orchestra play side-by-side in music by Jean Sibelius and John Williams, surrounding Altarriba leading the students on their own in a work by Brian Nabors. The NOI musicians will also be featured on their own in Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony, conducted by Alsop.
