  • A C&G Partners team led by Associate Partner Maya Kopytman has designed a series of interactive motion graphic pieces to accompany a live orchestra performance of Caminos del Inka. This is a new concert program inspired by the Inca Trail, the pathways that once unified what is now Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and Argentina. Conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya conceived the event, first premiered with visual accompaniment by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in October 2008, to celebrate the musical legacy of South America. The Chicago Tribune called the premiere "a refreshing departure from the usual subscription concert fare and format ... smartly put together".
