three bridges spanning the Chicago River
(by the intersection of Webster & Ashland Aves.)
Chicago, IL 60614
Imagine a bridge spanning a river as a vertebra, and three bridges are three of the river’s vertebrae. A musical ensemble, divided into three sections, will perform the score River's Vertebrae on three bridges on the Chicago River’s north branch on June 21st, as part of Make Music Chicago 2015. This debut performance of River's Vertebrae happens rain or shine.
From makemusicchicago.org: "Make Music Chicago presented by Rush Hour Concerts, links Chicago with a massive global music-making festival that takes place on the Summer Solstice every year and allows people of all ages and abilities to play together all day long – for free.
"Whether you’ve played an instrument all your life or haven’t sung since kindergarten this Father’s Day, Sunday June 21st enjoy free participatory events all over the city. Come play a part. We’ll have a few headline events and many, many more where you can either walk up and join in or just enjoy some great, free music."
Note: the audio track above is from one bridge -- with Roger Carroll ( tenor saxophone), Sara Zalek (moroccan drum, quacubas), Dan Godston (cornet, percussion). We're working on making a track that combines this location with the sounds created on the other two bridges during this performance.
