We’re opening our doors to Nick Photinos, David Schrader, and other Thirsty Ears Street Festival performers for a preview concert. The third annual festival kicks off on Saturday, August 11 and ends on Sunday, August 12.

You can visit the festival at Wilson street between Hermitage and Ravenswood; the two day event will feature fifteen stellar ensembles and soloists performing music from Beethoven to Shostakovich to Reich and everything in between on the main stage.

There’s delicious beer from Empirical Brewing, vendor booths, kid friendly activities and food trucks on both days.

$10 suggested donation, all proceeds support the ACM School of Music, a non-profit organization.
