The 15th Annual World Music Festival Chicago was originally scheduled for only seven days but recently announced it will expand to a full 11 days. Shows will be held at the Old Town School of Folk Music, Mayne Stage, National Museum of Mexican Art, the University of Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts, the Beverly Arts Center and of course Millennium Park.
The festival will run from September 12th to September 22 and will start with a performance at Millennium Park at 6 p.m. on September 12. The first performance will include The Eddie Palmieri Sala Orchestra but many are really looking forward to the second day’s performance.
September 13 at 6 p.m. at Millennium Park, there will be the performance, “RagaMala: A Celebration of Indian Music.” The performance will be followed by an all-night playing of classical Indian music. This will run from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning.
