Make Music Chicago is where all kinds of people — amateur and professional — will be making all kinds of music. Classical, jazz, rock, cabaret, folk, gospel, blues, world, fusion, pop, dance, rap, … you name it. All over the city of Chicago people can express and share their love of music. Starting in 1982 in Paris, where “Faites de la musique!” (“Make music!”) is pronounced the same as Fête de la Musique (Festival of Music), it’s now celebrated in over 460 cities around the world. Join in the celebration in Hyde Park at several venues: International House, Rockefeller Chapel, Joan’s Studio, and Chant.
Performances take place at the following locations: International House, 1414 E. 59th Street from 12:00pm–2:00pm and from 5:00pm–7:00pm. Rockefeller Chapel carillon, Woodlawn & 59th Street at 12:00pm and at 6:00pm. Joan’s Studio, 1438 E. 57th Street from 2:00-6:00pm. Chant, 1509 E. 53rd Street from 8:00pm–11:30pm.
