If you’re looking for something to do on Sunday, head south on Lake Shore Drive to the stunning South Shore Cultural Center for an afternoon of beautiful music.
The Civic Orchestra of Chicago (training orchestra of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra) and CSO Conducting Fellow Sean Kuboda, recipient of the first CSO Sir Georg Solti Conducting Apprenticeship, will perform a free community concert open to the public.
The program, which features Elizabeth Gray, mezzo-soprano, includes:
Beethoven Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68 (Pastoral)
Falla, arr. Berio 7 Canciones populares españolas (Seven Popular Spanish Songs)
The South Shore Cultural Center is located at 7059 S. South Shore Drive in Chicago. The concert will begin at 3:00 p.m., is free, and tickets are not required.
If you’ve never been to the South Shore Cultural Center, you’re in for a visual treat. The Cultural Center, originally designed as a private country club, was recognized as a Chicago landmark in 2004 and is also listed on the National Register since 1975. The interior features a solarium, formal dining hall, theater, culinary institute, restaurant, nature sanctuary, and butterfly garden.
