The Chicago Symphony Orchestra curated concerts featuring composer-in-residence Jessie Montgomery, Elijah Daniel Smith and Adolphus Hailstork. And the Atlanta Symphony will play music from “Black Panther” and bassist Xavier Foley.

Blakeview: Happy 60th Birthday to Wynton Marsalis

At age 6, Wynton Marsalis received his first trumpet as a gift from the legendary Al Hirt, a friend of his father’s. At 8, he performed with Danny Barker’s Fairview Baptist Church band, and by the time he was 14 he was performing with the New Orleans Philharmonic.

As perfect as Chastain and Isaac seem together in person, they’re not a real-life couple. In fact, they’re both married to different people.
