Carlos Kalmar conducts Benjamin Britten

The British composer's centenary is inspiring all sorts of local tributes this year, few of them as auspicious as the Grant Park Music Festival performances of his deeply moving "War Requiem." Joining artistic director Kalmar will be the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus, Chicago Children's Choir and vocal soloists. June 28-29, Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, near Randolph Drive and Michigan Avenue; 312-742-7638,
