The Heritage Corridor Community Associates will travel to Chicago on April 8 for the 28th annual Art and Music Program to be held in the Rubloff auditorium at the Chicago Art Institute. A optional lunch will be offered in the MPR and the day will end with two musicians playing solos in galleries 135 and 211 from 1:30 to 2 p.m.
Art historian, Jeff Nigro, has selected 10 pieces of art from the Art Institute of Chicago’s permanent collection. The art will be paired with music from the Spanish Golden era, played on instruments from that time period. Besides the instrumentalists, there will be vocalists singing songs from the era, and eight dancers from Hubbard Street 2 performing to music of the period.
The bus will depart from Peru, Ottawa and Morris to take participants to Chicago. For more information, call Barbara Mueller at 815-434-5218. The deadline to go on the trip is March 24.
