Jazz from Chicago's most admired classical musicians? You read it right -- the Chicago Philharmonic Chamber Players are not your typical classical quartet. What they have in common is that aside from playing great classical music, they also all harbor an intense passion for jazz. In this concert at City Winery, they put aside Wagner and Beethoven and break out numbers from Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and more. They'll be joined by guest vocalist Frank Babbitt. Brunch is also available for purchase while you enjoy the show.
This show is recommended for ages 7 and up.
Running time is 60 minutes.
