The latest project at Chicago West Community Music Center is to provide West Side residents with access to artistic programming at local venues. Recognizing the need for low-cost but high-quality performances, Chicago West Community Music Center is taking on the responsibility of presenting a variety of live performances at minimal or no cost.
In their first undertaking, live music and storytelling is being presented in a collaboration between Chicago West Community Music Center and 2nd Story theater company. Their first show was presented February 22 at Inspiration Kitchens, located in the heart of the Garfield Park Community.
Later this spring, they’ll host a series of workshops for Garfield Park community members to develop their own stories for a performance in May.
