On Sunday June 21, 2015 Chicago will host its annual daylong Make Music celebration, where musicians of all ages and skill levels are welcome to perform side by side in neighborhoods from Hyde Park to Evanston, Humboldt Park to Lake Shore Drive, Lincoln Square to the Loop. Rush Hour Concerts welcomes you to come join your fellow Chicagoans to listen and enjoy a variety of genres including classical, opera, show tunes, rock, country, folk, blues, gospel, jazz, electronic and an array of international styles. Every performance is free and open to the public.
In June 1982, the Fête de la Musique began in the streets of Paris as a free and spontaneous celebration of music during the summer solstice – the longest day of the year – embracing music of every style and musicians of all ages and abilities. In 2011, at the request of French Consul General Graham Paul, Rush Hour Concerts inaugurated Make Music Chicago, bringing the Fête de la Musique to Chicago, and bringing Chicago into the global musical phenomenon. Participants include professional musicians and volunteers.
Make Music Chicago will take place at over 60 venues across Chicago.
