Music Under Glass – Lakeshore Rush: Sunlit
September 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us from the comfort of your home for a musical performance with Lakeshore Rush with Garfield Park Conservatory as your virtual Background!
Lakeshore Rush is a Chicago based ensemble that comprises seven extraordinary musicians from across the Midwest. Their mission is to provide high-quality performances of new and traditional classical music, championing underperformed works, commissioning new repertoire, and increasing access for new audiences to classical and contemporary music. Lakeshore Rush is named after a previously endangered species of grass indigenous to the shores of Lake Michigan. Since its founding in 2014, the group has become known for its riveting performances, programming innovation, and synergistic collaboration.
Sunlit is a musical exploration of humanity’s relationship with nature, performed at the Garfield Park Conservatory, one of the largest and most stunning botanical conservatories in the nation. Musical selections will explore the ever-present influence of the sun and its cycles, the seasons, animal life, and our inescapable need to take an active role in preserving nature.
This project is made possible in part by the generous support of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

Registration closes Wednesday September 29th at 4:30pm.
