Side by Side with the Chicago Philharmonic

June 09, 2019 3:44 PM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)

From the Chicago Philharmonic web site:

This program, presented through the Chicago Park District’s “Night Out in the Parks” initiative, brings side-by-side symphonic concerts to Chicago parks in local communities. Students and community members are invited to bring their instruments and collaborate with Chicago Philharmonic musicians in rehearsing and performing free concerts for members of the community and the general public. This initiative launched in 2015 with events at Ping Tom Memorial Park in Chinatown and the Columbus Park Refectory in the Austin community. Since then we have expanded to perform at Humboldt Park, Garfield Park Conservatory, and South Shore Cultural Center.

We are excited to bring FIVE side-by-side concerts to Chicago in the summer of 2019!

June 21 – Humboldt Park Boathouse (with Make Music Chicago!)
