Experience a visual jazz score through a sonic journey of momentous abstractions from the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project led by celebrated composer Renee Baker. 

Renee Baker led the FAQtet performance that wowed audiences at our July opening for our current exhibition, Post Black Folk Art in America 1930-1980-2016. The Chicago Modern Orchestra Project will be performing again at Intuit on November 10th. Their third performance is inspired by African- American novelist, essayist, playwright, and poet James Baldwin.
