In 2017 and 2018, Bach + Beethoven Experience commissioned six composers to write new music for period (or “early” or “Baroque”) instruments that told the stories of Chicago’s people, neighborhoods, and communities. These were the stories and experiences of real people and communities of Chicago. They are the stories of women and immigrants, of people of color and of neighborhoods, of family and special places full of memory.
You should come see us perform all the music from both years all in one place, and you should bring your friends and family. The performances are FREE FREE FREE and are part of Chicago’s Night Out In the Parks series, which arranges live performances in public spaces. These events are family and food friendly, and we love meeting with people before and after the performances.
