covid-19

The health and safety of our concert-goers, the musicians, our staff, ushers and volunteers remain our highest priority. Festival staff are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving developments around the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19), working with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the Harris Theatre, and sharing safeguards and best practices as outlined by federal health authorities, and state and local officials. 

Please be advised: all Festival concerts for the 2020 season are cancelled more.  In addition, the 2020 Chicago House Music Conference & Festival, Chicago Gospel Music Festival, and Chicago Blues Festival are cancelled. Millennium Park, the Harris Theater and Cloud Gate ("The Bean") are currently closed.  The State of Illinois' stay-at-home order has been extended to the end of May. Please continue to check the Chicago Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control websites for the latest information and guidance.  In the meantime, our thoughts are with you, the artists, and our fellow performing arts organizations as we weather these uncertain times together.
