By David Salazar

The Harris Theater in Chicago has announced its 2022-23 season.

For the purposes of this article, our focus will be on vocal and operatic performances.

There will be a performance of Golijov’s “Falling Out of Time: A Tone Poem in Voices.” The vocal ensemble will feature soloists and technical / production staff members from Europe, North America, the Middle East, and South America.

Performance Date: Nov. 3, 2022

Patricia Racette will present music by Edith Piaf.

“I find myself continually coming back to the songs of Piaf … because of the raw, visceral nature of her delivery, the kind of drive that melded its way into all aspects of my own artistic identity over the years. Trying to emulate Piaf is not the goal – that has been done. This evening is my chance to put my voice on songs that create windows into the soul of her tragic and triumphant life,” Racette said of this program.
