Summer is not over yet!!

There is much excitement as we lead up to our twelfth summer season finale next Tuesday, August 30.My young colleagues at Fifth House Ensemble are getting ready to wow you with Beethoven’s Septet (read all about their rehearsal adventures here), the Rush Hour staff is stocking the larder with refreshments for Tuesday’s pre-concert reception, and we’re getting calls from audience members wondering if Comcast could give away an iPad every week. (Sorry, this is a special opportunity for our finale — but make sure you enter the drawing at the concert this week to win!)

At the end of this phenomenal season of music-making and milestones, I have a special request for you: please share your thoughts with me.

* What was your favorite concert?

* Do you have a favorite piece we should consider programming for the 2012 Summer Series?

* Anything you’d like to change about our Summer Series?

* Do you know of a perfect site (or sites) for Make Music Chicago 2012?

I welcome your responses to these questions or anything else about Rush Hour that’s on your mind as the summer winds down.

Your feedback — compliments, criticism, and ideas — are valuable to me, to our staff, and to Rush Hour’s board of directors as we continue to make Great Music for Busy Lives!

Please write to me at deborah AT

I look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you next Tuesday, when we raise a glass to a great summer.

Many thanks and all best,



Deborah Sobol

Artistic and Executive Director
