Dianne Reeves, a Symphony Center favorite, is an astonishing vocalist who transports her audience with her power, joyful intensity and spiritual abandon. She appears on the 2014/15 SCP Jazz series on the heels of Beautiful Life, her first studio album in five years. With her longtime pianist and musical director Peter Martin leading the way, the four-time Grammy® winner will illuminate the various facets of love with songs ranging from Stormy Weather to Marvin Gaye’s I Want You. More info here.
Symphony Center is graciously extending their stage once again to John Moulder, Chi-Town Jazz Festival’s Founder/Director as he encourages people to attend our events in the coming weeks supporting hunger relief in Chicago. Plan to attend an evening of great jazz at one of these venues. There is still time to become a Sponsor. And you can always just “Donate Now!” at our secure link. We hope to see you at the Festival. Thanks!

The Festival operates through the generosity of many people – musicians who share their talents, our all-volunteer staff who donate their time, Chicago’s most loved jazz venues that donate their space, and leading Chicago institutions that donate tickets and other services—that all come together to raise funds for hunger relief in Chicago. We ask that you consider supporting hunger relief also by attending any or all of the Chi-Town Jazz Festival performances! Your donations and the funds raised help feed the needy in Chicago through the works of Catholic Charities, Care for Real, Top Box Foods and West
