Music Director Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra joined into our fair city’s Stanley Cup fever yesterday with a performance of “Chelsea Dagger“, the song played at the United Center after every Blackhawks‘ goal. Muti sported a personalized #19 jersey, in honor of Blackhawks team captain #19, Jonathan Toews.
“The CSO musicians and I are happy to honor and support another home team, the Chicago Blackhawks, with our music,” said Muti. “They are a world-class hockey team, and we hope this recording demonstrates our support of them and their desire to bring the Stanley Cup back to this great city. As I keep hearing and seeing everywhere in Chicago, ‘Go Hawks!’”
