Thirsty Ears Festival: Chartreuse Duos

ACM is proud to present the second annual Thirsty Ears Festival: Chicago’s only classical music street festival! 

For two days Wilson street between Hermitage and Ravenswood will be closed to feature fifteen stellar ensembles and soloists performing music from Beethoven to Shostakovich to Reich and everything in between on the main stage.

We’ll also have delicious beer from Empirical Brewing, vendor booths, kid friendly activities and food trucks on both days including Empanadas 5411, Pierogi Wagon and Bruges Brothers.

$5 suggested donation, all proceeds support the ACM School of Music.
