Beginning March 10, 2014, CCM will present six free concerts for all ages in Chicago parks and public libraries as part of its CCM presents: Concerts for Chicago Neighborhoods. The featured concerts are made possible through a generous grant from The Field Foundation of Illinois.
CCM designed these “neighborhood tours” to align with the vision of the 2012 Chicago Cultural Plan for enriching and strengthening the city’s arts and cultural sector. “Concerts for Chicago Neighborhoods” supports the idea that music not only has the capability to change lives for both the listener and the performer, but also to create stronger and more engaged communities.
Beginning on March 10, with additional dates on March 13, 17, 24, and 27, 2014, audiences will hear CCM’s professional development ensemble Quintet Attacca. Quintet Attacca will be performing two programs: Romance for Winds for all Chicago Public Library performances, and Quintet Idol! for Park District concerts for all ages. All concerts will be held in local and accessible locations and will offer an approachable and in depth look at the beauty and relevancy of chamber music. All concerts will be offered free of charge and are open to the public. The generous grant from The Field Foundation of Illinois also allows for transportation reimbursement for school groups. If you are interested in organizing a field trip for your school, please contact Jean McCullough at firstname.lastname@example.org.
