Musica Viva: Picosa

Join us in our Fine Arts Theatre (K-1000) for the Musica Viva spring 2023 concert series!

This free event on Sunday, Feb. 5 features Picosa. Picosa is a Chicago-based ensemble of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and composer-in-residence presenting compelling performances that reimagine the traditional classical music concert. Currently in its ninth season, the ensemble is in residence at Epiphany Center for the Arts, North Central College and Elmhurst University and is in its fourth concert season at DePaul University's Holtschneider Performance Center. Picosa is thrilled to be the recipient of the 2022 CMA Classical Commissioning grant in collaboration with Shawn Okpebholo, premiere to be held in 2024. Please visit for more information.
