Ving Tsun Kung Fu: Adults

Needs a location

Ving Tsun (pronounced Wing Chun) is an ancient Chinese martial art that was designed in times of war as a powerful military technology. We practice it in modern times to defend ourselves in the streets, as well as explore our own economy of motion, and to develop more profound relaxation. This martial art form also boosts the immune system as well as keeps you active without straining yourself. Join Sifu Cyrus of Northside Kung Fu in Chicago.

Class is designed for adults 18+

Sunday Musicale (Double Bill!): Wild Daisy & The Georgia Rae Band

Needs a location

Bring a blanket or lawn chair and grab your friends to enjoy our summer Sunday Musicale concerts in North School Park. We're closing out the summer season with a special double bill!

At 2 p.m., enjoy a heel-tapping medley of current, upbeat country and pop songs by Wild Daisy! A dynamic female-fronted country band, Wild Daisy has established a reputation in Chicago for consistently delivering high-quality, family-friendly, crowd-interactive, entertaining shows, with musicianship and energy that cannot be matched.

At 3:15 p.m., sisters and songwriting duo Kelly Jo and Georgia Rae take the stage. The inseparable sisters anchor the Georgia Rae Band, creating a mix of Americana, contemporary folk, roots, and a little jazziness, flavored with sister harmonies and youthful energy. Their original songs are cleaver, catchy and strung with meaning and life lessons.
