Ever wished you could play in a professional symphony? The Chicago Philharmonic’s “Side by Side” series, held in venues throughout the city, gives you the chance to do just that. Community musicians are invited to come to Chinatown’s Ping Tom Park with their instruments for a two-hour rehearsal, culminating in a public performance at this especially scenic riverfront setting.
June 29. Rehearsal at 3 p.m., concert at 6 p.m. Ping Tom Park. Free. Link
