Listen to the Civic Orchestra on the Lawn of a Prairie School Masterpiece…

As summer approaches, so too will the many outdoor events and activities that Chicagoans have been waiting patiently to attend. And while there’s no shortage of outdoor events happening downtown, like music and movies at Millennium Park, there will also be some events around the city’s neighborhoods worth catching.

If you’re into orchestral music and Chicago architecture, one event worth adding to your calendar is the Civic Orchestra of Chicago concert at Carl Schurz High School on Friday, June 10. The school, designed by Dwight H. Perkins and built in 1910 is a massive structure that blends the Chicago and Prairie schools of architecture. It’s an impressive work and one of Chicago’s most important buildings outside of downtown. And on Friday, June 10 starting at 7:00 p.m. you’ll be able to soak up the sounds of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and student musicians from Carl Schurz High School’s music department on the lawn of this Chicago Landmark.

Admission is free, but ticket reservation is required.
