Each summer, the Grant Park Music Festival brings music and fun to neighborhoods across Chicago featuring the Festival's String Fellows in an eclectic mix of music for string quartet. Bring a blanket or picnic chair and join us in your neighborhood park for a free, hour-long, family-friendly concert.
The Grant Park Music Festival String Fellows will play instruments provided by Violins of Hope, a private collection of violins, violas, and cellos that once belonged to Jewish musicians before and during the Holocaust. The presentation of these instruments is hosted by JCC Chicago.
