This special collection of virtual tours and brief performances brings attendees “into” spaces they wouldn’t ordinarily see at storied Chicago music venues, including the Avalon Regal Theater, The Forum, Thalia Hall, and the Vic Theatre.
Get a behind-the-scenes look at four historic music venues in Bronzeville, Lakeview, Pilsen, and South Shore. What have the walls of these venues heard over the years? An expert from each location will provide insights on the building’s history, architecture, community and culture, while also sharing what they think the future holds for the venue. Enjoy musical interludes performed by Lloyd Brodnax King, Johnse Holt, and Emily Beanblossom.
This program is part of Open House Chicago 2020.
