Chicago Stories: Book Two

There are so many more stories to share.

In a city of more than ten million people, every individual, every community, and every neighborhood makes a unique contribution to the life of the city. Chicago Stories honors the experiences of our neighbors - living, breathing Chicagoans - by setting their stories to music. In 2018, we're back with three new Chicago stories, set by three Chicago composers, and performed by Chicago artists. It's music about, by, and for Chicagoans.

Find out more about the project by viewing the main Chicago Stories page, learning about our 2017 installment in Chicago Stories: Book One, and watching our Chicago Stories: Book One featurette below.

What is Chicago Stories about?

In late 2016, we recruited three young Chicago composers to take part in this inaugural Chicago Stories project. We asked them one question: "What community is personal to you that you want to write about?" Learn about how the project went, the people involved, and what you could expect in Chicago Stories: Book Two by watching this featurette about last year.
