ABOUT THE RUSH HOUR CONCERT SERIES

In the Summer of 2000, concert pianist and civic leader Deborah Sobol founded the Rush Hour Concert series to reinvent the traditional classical music concert format by presenting chamber music masterworks in an engaging setting, accessible to all.

These 30-minute concerts offer unparalleled access to repertoire spanning 700 years, performed by world-class musicians from Chicago’s leading ensembles including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera of Chicago and independent chamber music groups. Informal education via pre-concert conversations about the music with artists, composers and other members of Chicago’s vibrant classical music scene and post-concert opportunities to interact with the performers make for an inviting and invigorating cultural experience.

LISTEN

We have a large selection of pieces on our SoundCloud account, we invite you to take a listen.
