Over 525 concertgoers filled St. James Cathedral for the June 2nd kickoff of Rush Hour’s 10th anniversary season. Newcomers to the “Rush Hour experience” and loyal fans alike mingled while enjoying Argo tea, wine, and refreshments from Trader Joe’s.
13 renowned artists from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera Orchestra, and the Chicago Chamber Musicians dazzled the audience with their performance of W.A. Mozart’s Serenade No. 10 in B-Flat Major (“Gran Partita”).
Many thanks to the musicians, volunteers, Argo Tea and Trader Joe’s, and the staff of St. James Cathedral for helping to make the first concert of our 10th anniversary season a rousing success!
