Things I Like — Free Music

I may bemoan the lack of free museums in this city, but summer heralds a cornucopia of affordable musical fare.

Finally attended the Dame Myra Hess Concert series under the beautiful Tiffany dome at the Chicago Cultural Center. Bite-sized classics, today a cello sonata, for lunchtime listeners. (You can tune in live on WMFT‘s website from anywhere every Wednesday, what a treat!).

AND happened upon the free open rehearsals in Millennium Park afterward. The Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Blue Man Group are giving a free concert tonight. Even sans paint and penguin-suits it was adorable and infectious.

Now I just need to try out the Friday night swing sessions (including free lessons!)…
