LISTENING TOGETHER:

How Chicagoans Experience Music

Saturday, January 27, 3:00 PM • Edgebrook Library, 2nd Floor Community Room

Chicagoans have flocked to large venues such as the Regal Theater and Symphony Hall to gather indoors, while others prefer their music al fresco in places such as Washington Park or at outdoor festivals throughout the city.
