An Adler University Online Campus-sponsored event featuring performers, activists, artists, and more was highlighted in a recent lineup of “must-see” Chicago-area classical concerts.

Set for Saturday, Jan. 27 at 1 p.m., "Faulty Systems" represents a collaborative effort with Thompson Street Opera Company. The event will take place at the university’s Chicago campus, 17 N. Dearborn, and will be live-streamed online. It is a continuation of the Annual 2018 Adler Retreat, which, this year, centered around the activist theme, “Ignite, Connect, Push.”

"As part of the multidisciplinary event, the Faulty Systems ensemble gives the Chicago premiere of Joshua Bornfield’s chamber opera ‘Uncle Alex,’ about perils faced by Russian immigrants to the U.S. in the early 20th century,” writes Chicago Tribune reporter, John von Rhein.
