For the second stop of their 2017 U.S. Fall Tour, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Riccardo Muti headed to Berkeley, Calif., for a three-concert residency, presented by Cal Performances, at Zellerbach Hall on the University of California-Berkeley campus.

The day began with an open rehearsal for student musicians, led by Maestro Muti, where he and the CSO were greeted by Matías Tarnopolsky, executive director of Cal Performances, and a former artistic administrator at Orchestra Hall. The CSO’s first concert featured Rossini’s Overture to William Tell, the West Coast premiere of Elizabeth Ogonek’s All These Lighted Things and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4.
