On October 18, 1991, Sir Georg Solti, along with one of his predecessors (Rafael Kubelík) as well as his successor (Daniel Barenboim) came together to bring the centennial celebration to a grand conclusion.

In the afternoon, The Spirit of Music—a statue celebrating the memory and legacy of the Orchestra’s founder, Theodore Thomas—was rededicated in Grant Park.

And later that evening, the Orchestra recreated its very first concert with all three conductors sharing the podium.
