On Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 5:30 p.m., the Harris Theater for Music and Dance presents its first Eat (and Drink) to the Beat with a special “Appy Hour” prior to a performance by DanceWorks Chicago (DWC). Some of the city’s hippest food trucks will be on site to provide audience members with a variety of “apps” and food options.

The theater will also offer specialty cocktails and wine beverages to pair with food to create a post-work social gathering catered toward young business professionals of Chicago’s downtown area.

In honor of the Harris Theater’s 10th season, DWC will present a four-piece program of works choreographed exclusively by Chicago-based choreographers, including a world premiere from Chicago favorite and Ruth Page Award winner Harrison McEldowney and aerial dance specialist Jeremy Plummer, recipient of the Chicago National Association of Dance Masters 2013 Artistic Achievement Award.

Crain’s Chicago Business is the Lead Corporate Sponsor to Eat to the Beat 2013-2014. Sarah Solotaroff Mirkin is the Lead Sponsor of the DanceWorks Chicago Eat to the Beat performance. The Chauncey and Marion D. McCormick Family Foundation is the Presenting Sponsor of the series.

“Crain’s is thrilled to sponsor the first Eat (and Drink) to the Beat,” states David Snyder, publisher of Crain’s Chicago Business. “Going to the Harris after work or at lunch is a great break for area professionals, and a terrific opportunity to see local performers.”
