11/27 | Chicago Folklore Ensemble


The World in Chicago – an evening of story and song!

From the Serbian mountains of blood and honey to the passionate coasts of Argentina, rattling buses tearing through Thai countryside and back to sweet home Chicago, embark on a journey around the world atop a carpet of music and story. String quartet and storyteller come together to narrate the sights, sounds, and emotions stored in the memories of Chicago immigrant musicians.

The Chicago Folklore Ensemble celebrates Chicago’s immigrant communities and helps to share and pass on their stories and music. The ensemble interviews musicians of many ethnic backgrounds, collects their traditional music and oral histories, and adapts them into dynamic arrangements for string quartet and storyteller.The World in Chicago – an evening of story and song!
