This Concert is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks series, supported by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan. Now in its third year, the 2015 Night Out in the Parks series will host over 1,000 events and programs at more than 250 neighborhood parks throughout the city, making community parks a safe haven and hubs of activity. Projects will vary from traditional performances and concerts, to movies, peace rallies, community workshops, nature based programs, dance pieces, festivals, and more. The Chicago Park District has partnered with more than 80 arts and community organizations to expand and produce this successful initiative.

Live the Spirit Residency is a non-profit organization producing the annual Englewood Jazz Festival. We also provide a free aftershool jazz education program at Hamilton Park for teens, a senior citizens’ jazz band, and actively commission new work for our resident ensemble the Live the Spirit Big Band, celebrate the spirit of Englewood and the history and present of the black experience in Chicago.
