Chicago Arts Orchestra Album Announcement

Join the Chicago Arts Orchestra as we celebrate the release of our debut album, Al COMBATE: Rediscovered Galant Music from Eighteenth-Century Mexico.

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.
