Side by Side with the Chicago Philharmonic at Garfield Park Conservatory

December 3, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This program, presented through the Chicago Park District’s “Night Out in the Parks” initiative, brings side-by-side symphonic concerts to Chicago parks in local communities. Students and community members are invited to bring their instruments and collaborate with Chicago Philharmonic musicians in rehearsing and performing free concerts for members of the community and the general public. This initiative launched in 2015 with events at Ping Tom Memorial Park in Chinatown and the Columbus Park Refectory in the Austin community. In 2016 we expanded to Humboldt Park and in Summer 2017 we performed at South Shore Cultural Center for the first time.  Learn more.

In December 2017, for the first time, the Chicago Philharmonic will present a holiday-themed Side by Side with the Chicago Philharmonic concert at the Garfield Park Conservatory (Horticulture Hall).
