Chicago Immigrant Stories III

Forging musical collaborations to resonate across all Chicago citizens as they are reminded or redefine what it means to be 'American'

Chicago Jazz Philharmonic’s artistry of cross‐genre collaborations melds with the musical cultures of some of Chicago’s many immigrant communities, wherein jazz, classical, and ethnic folk music intersect in new and unexpected ways. The performers share their stories and their artistry to create a collective experience for neighborhood audiences across Chicago, of what it means to be an American.

The goals of this program are to:

  1. Connect musicians and audiences to engage in cross-cultural learning and dialogue. Participants will learn something new about themselves and others, appreciate new art forms, feel more connected to their communities, and collectively reflect on what it means to be an American.
  2. Develop new audiences for all collaborators. CJP core audiences will cross-pollinate with other communities – representing the depth and breadth of our cities’ peoples.
  3. Expand creative practice. Collaborating artists learn a new technique, skill, creative approach that continues to inform their practice.
