Feb. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- The Chicago Arts Orchestra announces two events for the classical music lover!

Join the Chicago Arts Orchestra as they celebrate the release of their debut album, Al COMBATE: Rediscovered Galant Music from Eighteenth-Century Mexico Wednesday February 27 2013 6-8pm

Receive a copy of the CD, enjoy an open bar of beer, wine and other beverages.  Attendees will also have a chance to mingle with many of the CAO’s talented musicians.

The album Al Combate represents works that have never been recorded and not heard since the Eighteenth Century.  The album's title piece, Al Combate, represents a celebratory ode in honor of King Charles III, and is the premiere recording of one of the most significant works written in the eighteenth-century Americas. The album highlights New Spain as a mecca of baroque and galant music through the works of Ignacio Jerusalem and Santiago Billoni, two of the most influential composers of eighteenth-century Mexico.

Where: Curtain Call Club, located in the Athenaeum Theatre 2936 N Southport Ave Chicago, IL.   Brown line to Wellington, #11 Lincoln Bus.  

Tickets: Pre-Register before February 15 $30.  Registration after February 15, or at the door $35.  Purchase your tickets online at  Space is limited for this event.

Rediscovered Treasures III
: Galant Music From Eighteenth-Century Mexico and Spain Saturday, March 2, 2013 8pm.  Prelude pre-concert talk will begin at 7:30pm

The Chicago Arts Orchestra presents the third installment of the successful Rediscovered Treasures concert series.  Rediscovered Treasures brings back to life works of musical art that have been dormant in Mexican archives for centuries. For years, fortune seekers have uncovered treasures from failed Spanish expeditions and shipwrecks bringing to light the symbols of a fallen empire. In much the same way, musicologists and scholars have rediscovered the music of the Spanish Colonies giving us a peek inside the opulence and grandeur of a time long past.

Javier José Mendoza- Conductor, Mark Shuldiner- Harpsichord, Elda Peralta- Mezzo Soprano, and Eleanor Ranney Mendoza- Soprano.

Program to include:
Concierto por Clave (Modern Day Premiere) by Manuel Narro, Spain

Music for Vespers (Modern Day Premiere) by Santiago Billoni, Durango, Mexico

Concert to be held at St. Michael Church of Old Town, 1633 N. Cleveland, Chicago, IL.  Red line to Clybourn or Brownline Sedgwick stop

Tickets starting at $17 TICKETS WILL BE $20 at the door. Patron tickets $25  Students and seniors $15.  Purchase tickets online:

The 7:30pm Prelude pre-concert talk is an in-depth look at the music with Dr. Drew Davies of Northwestern University and musicologist Dianne Lehmann Goldman.
