Early Saturday morning, we loaded the bus, as well as a few cars, to head to Chicago for an epic day of performances!

Our first stop was Make Music Chicago!

We played in a large room at Roosevelt University in the loop with huge windows on to Wabash Ave.  Our first performer, Jessica Pollack, played her solo outside to help encourage passersby to come in and join us, and we played for a packed room at Roosevelt!

We had Potbelly for lunch, and the participants were able to wander around for a little bit before we loaded the bus to head to destination number two: Constellation!

Despite the crazy traffic trying to get over to Western Ave, we made it to Constellation in time for a smooth soundcheck.  Following soundcheck, we had Lou Malnati’s pizza delivered for dinner and had a bit of a break before concert time!

Our final concert at Constellation was a huge success, and it was great to have an almost full house for our participants — including fresh inc 2013 alum Evan Williams!

Following the concert, we were able to mingle with our audience members, take some photos, and hang out before we had to pack up the bus and trek back to Kenosha!
