      Artists include Jory Vinikour, Lara Downes, David Schrader, Winston Choi, Stephen Alltop, Adam Neiman, Ariella Mak-Neiman, Anthony Molinaro, Philippe LeRoy, Carol lie Breckenridge, Jason Moy, and performers from the keyboard programs of University of Chicago, DePaul, Loyola, Northwestern, and Roosevelt Universities, and Wheaton College.

Series registrations are transferrable.* Individual concert registrations are also available at $25 each and $15 for students (except for the Saturday, October 3 concert which is $65 each and $35 for students; this is an extended concert that includes a boxed lunch).
