Mei-Ann Chen's program for her first season with Chicago Sinfonietta

Chicago Tribune classical music critic John von Rhein runs down what's on tap as Memphis Symphony Orchestra music director Mei-Ann Chen begins her first season in her other job as music director for the Chicago Cinfonietta.

A host of events during the 2011-12 season will introduce the Chicago Sinfonietta's new music director, Mei-Ann Chen, to the local concert public. These include a free preseason concert at Millennium Park, a multimedia performance marking the centennial of Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloe" and several world premieres.

Here's the article that appeared in The Commercial Appeal when Chen took the Chicago job last August.
