Celebrate music education with Third Coast Percussion and students from The People's Music School! Join us at Center on Halsted's Irving Harris Reception Hall for an evening of music, food, drink, and fun to support "Embark" and Third Coast Percussion's other music education programs. There will be live performance by Third Coast Percussion, one-of-a-kind silent auction items, food, drinks, an instrument petting zoo, and more. You'll even get to make some music with us too!
"Embark" is the hometown music education effort of Grammy-winning quartet Third Coast Percussion, bringing special projects that emphasize creativity, collaboration, and inspiration to students in the city of Chicago. Presented in partnership with The People’s Music School, which has been providing free music instruction to Chicago youth since 1976, this program inspires elementary through high school age musicians to take control of their artistic development, teaches them to think critically and creatively about music-making, and builds a sense of community through collaborative creativity.
Your ticket goes directly to support TCP's work with students in the city of Chicago. Please consider a "sponsor" ticket to underwrite an entire series of workshops for one student, or a "super star" ticket to underwrite an entire single workshop for an entire student band or orchestra, as TCP helps them compose their own piece of new music! Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available. Contact us for details.
Dress for this event is casual.
Thanks to our event sponsors!
