The  Sounds of the South Loop  music series invites musicians and listeners to come together in the beautiful space of the  Second  Presbyterian Church Sanctuary. Concerts are a taut 60 minutes in length; no intermission; the music always high-quality regardless of the flavor - classical, modern, or exotic.

from the Artistic Director

I chose musicians who are more than great performers and technical wizards - they are people worth knowing.

My hope is that you will experience not only an artistic connection, but a personal connection with all of our performing artists. 

I call this - LIVE music at its BEST!
