Announcing a new Meetup for Chicago Classical Music Events!
What: Grant Park Music Festival Independence Celebration FREE!
When: Saturday, July 3,[masked]:00 PM
Pritzker Pavilion, Millenium Park
201 E Randolph Ave
Chicago, IL 60602
Celebrate 4th of July a day early at the Grant Park Music Festival Independence Day concert and picnic at Pritzker Pavilion. This sounds like a great show. They are pulling out all the stops--Irish Dancers, tap dancers, sing alongs, classical, American standards, you name it. http://www.grantparkmusicfestival.com/2010-season/independence-day-in-millennium-park
Here are detailed program notes:http://www.grantparkmusicfestival.com/uploads/pdf/Independence_Celebration_Program_Notes.pdf
I have no idea why this is on July 3 instead of July 4, but it frees up the Fourth for other celebrations, so why not? Show starts at 1:30. Meet outside the Chicago Cultural Center, Washington Street side, at noon and we will depart for the Pavilion at 12:15. Bring a picnic and a blanket or chair to sit on. If you can't make it by 12:15, call[masked] to find out where we are sitting. Call or email if you have questions. I will turn off my phone at 1:30 when the show starts. The more the merrier! Hope to see you there.
