Don’t miss two exciting upcoming events before the start of Rush Hour’s 9th season!

Percussion instrumentsFirst, Rush Hour will present the dazzling virtuosity of Third Coast Percussion on Friday, May 2 at the second annual Looptopia.

The FREE performance is scheduled for 5:45 – 6:15 p.m. at the Chicago Temple (77 W. Washington St., between Clark St. and Dearborn St.) No tickets are required – just drop in and enjoy great music amongst all of the downtown festivities.

Mingling at the Rush Hour TastingThen, on Saturday, May 10, the Fanfare Committee will hold its second annual “Rush Hour Tasting.” This intimate event, designed for those under the age of 40, will take place at photographer Sandro’s studio in Ukranian Village. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m., followed by a performance by violinist Jasmine Lin and cellist Clancy Newman at 7:00 p.m. Mingle with the artists and fellow young professionals after the concert. This event is a great way to introduce friends to Rush Hour!

If you are under 40, click here to make a contribution of $25 or more to RH and receive a free admission to the Rush Hour Tasting. Remember – your contribution will be doubled through the challenge grant opportunity.

We are working to make your weekly RH experience even more extensive and rich. As we survey items to offer at our ENSEMBLE table, we’d like to ask you, our audience, what might be of interest to you to have available for purchase. From scores of the works being performed and additional books on music and music-making to more CDs, please send us your thoughts. All proceeds from the ENSEMBLE shop sales go directly to keeping RH free and available to all.
