Pack a picnic and a jug of Iced Green Tea Heaven and head on down to Millennium Park this evening for a free concert.
Dusk Variations: My Brightest Diamond with Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras
A project led by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shara Worden, My Brightest Diamond consistently provides an overtly intoxicating sonic atmosphere through the seamless blending of rock, opera and chamber music. Recent collaborations with artists ranging from The Decemberists to Sufjan Stevens to David Byrne have thrust Worden into a new artistic dimension. Tonight, she appears with the internationally acclaimed Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras, performing a variety of her works newly orchestrated for this performance.

Presented by the Chicago Department of CulturalAffairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, the series will include four free concerts at 6:30 pm on Monday nights.
Enjoy a little Tea and Symphony.
