My photo debut at Pritzker Pavilion

The Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park is a surprisingly large space when you're trying to cover every angle for a very large choir.  But it's a pretty big thrill to get the all-access wristband that allows you to shoot from the stage. Here are scenes from a nonstop 2-hour concert with the incredible Chicago Children's Choir, directed by Josephine Lee, with soprano Jonita Lattimore, saxophonist Oran Etkin, and drummer Makaya McCraven.
