This season, a roster of over 60 world-class artists performed 14 programs of great live music, broadcast live via radio and online by 98.7 WFMT…

…over 5,800 people attended the season’s concert events, 25% of whom were under the age of 40…

…over 400 pounds of fruit and cheese, 5,600 cookies, brownies, and pastries, and over 1,500 glasses of wine were served by more than 30 volunteers of all ages at the summer’s pre-concert receptions…

20 consulates, cultural offices, and local businesses joined Rush Hour’s roster of community partners, expanding the Rush Hour experience with exclusive discounts, giveaways, and access to special events…

…and over 20,000 people have visited the Rush Hour website this year, which includes the podcast series Rush Hour Conversations, a Flickr photo album with hundreds of photos of the season’s concerts, and videos of Rush Hour activities.

Thank you again to all who have contributed financially at all levels to help us ensure that Rush Hour enters next season without a deficit and can remain free and available to all.
