Concerts are a taut 60 minutes in length; no intermission; the music always high-quality regardless of the flavor - classical, modern, or exotic .

Second Presbyterian Church of Chicago is dedicated to becoming a center for high-caliber music and a home to live music at its best. With the focus on outstanding performers and their unique musicianship, we hope you will join us for a musical excursion to remember!

from the Artistic Director

Kim
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!
