The schedule for The Grant Park Music Festival is now out. Lots of good -- if genero-standard -- music to hear. The most interesting thing on the program is the June 25 and 26 performance, which includes a nice Howell's piece and -- most importantly -- a performance of Morton Lauridsen's recent and award winning Lux Aeterna.
