Even better, they discovered they shared a wide range of musical interests, ranging from Southern and classic rock, blues, swing, jazz standards, cinematic instrumentals, folk music and of course, bluegrass. They formed a trio in 2015 and quickly built a reputation as one of the most versatile acoustic bands in the Midwest. The trio plays together with great finesse and is adept at switching gears to suit a variety of occasions including festivals, brew pubs, weddings, private and corporate events, nightclubs and the like. Mundelein is thrilled to welcome the group to its Concerts in the Park series. The concert takes place on Sunday, June 2nd from 5-6:30 p.m. at Kracklauer Park.

Freedom: A Tribute to George Michael and Wham!
Genesee Theatre

Waukegan, IL 60085
Voice: 800.982.2787
Very few musicians have written and performed more "mega-hits" than George Michael. So when the superstar passed away suddenly in 2016, singer/songwriter Jayden Frost made it his mission to share the artist's iconic songs with the world.

To create the ultimate concert experience, he teamed up with two industry heavyweights: George Michael's former bass player Deon Estus, who was also a member of Wham!; and Dave Schultz, who played keyboards in Berlin and the Goo Goo Dolls. With their help, Frost has created Freedom – A Tribute to George Michael and Wham!

Each song is recreated to perfection – from fan favorites on Wham!'s debut album Make It Big to George Michael's solo albums Faith and Listen without Prejudice. Every production detail is considered, including costume changes and visual presentations that highlight the different eras of the singer's career.

If you're a George Michael fan or simply want to experience some great '80s music, this concert should be on your bucket list.

John Prine: The Tree of Forgiveness World Tour at Ravinia Festival
Ravinia Festival
418 Sheridan Road
Highland Park, IL 60035
Voice: 847.266.5100
A two-time Grammy winner and 2019 nominee for both the Rock & Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame, John Prine is among the English language’s premier phrase-turners. Almost 50 years into a remarkable career—his classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized in the Grammy Hall of Fame and his songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, the Zac Brown Band, and many others—he has earned critical acclaim for his new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, which was produced by Grammy Award–winning producer Dave Cobb and recently debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, a career-high chart position for the legendary singer, songwriter, and performer.

Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks, and moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, KY, populate Purgatory, his debut album that’s simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. Its 10 songs are semiautobiographical sketches of his growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable.

Michael McDonald and Chaka Khan at Ravinia Festival
Ravinia Festival
418 Sheridan Road
Highland Park, IL 60035
Voice: 847.266.5100
Michael McDonald, a former Doobie Brothers frontman and Steely Dan collaborator, is known for his distinctive and ultra-smooth vocal style. He has won five Grammy Awards and has released nine solo albums. A younger generation of artists have embraced McDonald’s music in recent years, leading a groundswell of unexpected collaborations. Virtuoso bassist Thundercat recruited the singer (and Kenny Loggins) to co-write “Show You the Way,” a track on his 2017 LP, Drunk, which they performed together at the Coachella Festival. “[McDonald’s] singing is so specific, and it has so much depth,” Thundercat told the LA Times. “Michael is such a stark example of staying honest and open in your music.”

Chaka Khan is one of the world’s most gifted and celebrated musicians, and the 10-time Grammy Award winner has curated a rich musical legacy. A songwriter, actor, author, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and activist, Khan has influenced generations of recording artists. She has the rare ability to form-fit her voice across music genres, from R&B and gospel to pop, rock, and country to world music and classical. Affectionately known around the world as Chaka, she is revered by millions of fans as well as her peers for her timeless, classic, and unmatched signature music style and ability. Miles Davis often said, “[Chaka] sings like my horn,” and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, said, “[Chaka] is a one-of-a-kind, premier vocalist.”

Jennifer Hudson at Ravinia Festival
Ravinia Festival

Voice: 847.226.5100
Hers is the kind of story that dreams (and movies) are made of: a Chicago girl with a voice as big as her heart catches the world’s attention on a televised talent show, then goes on to win the Grammy and countless other awards—including the Oscar for her very first film. Jennifer Hudson, who made her only Ravinia appearance in 2011, is a star by any measure. And we’re thrilled to announce that she’s the star of our 2019 Gala Benefit Evening. Handpicked by Aretha Franklin to play the Queen of Soul in an upcoming biopic, Hudson also starred in Sex and the City, Winnie Mandela, the animated Sing, and the upcoming adaptation of Cats, as well as in the Broadway production of The Color Purple. In Dreamgirls, she famously sang, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” but that answer won’t stand as your RSVP. You simply must go to this once-in-a-lifetime gala.

Three Under Thirty-Three: On a Wurlitzer at the Sanfilippo Estate
The Sanfilippo Estate
789 Plum Tree Rd
Barrington , IL 60040
Voice: N/A
Organists Nathan Avakian (NY), Zak Frame (WI), and Nicholas Renkosik (IL) share not only the Sanfilippo Wurlitzer, but the stage for this exhilarating concert of highly-talented gentlemen organists, all under 33 years of age. With a combination of solos (organ), duos (piano & organ) and trios (organ, piano & drums), the evening promises the spectacular. We gave these guys free-reign in designing an eclectic, fun, and modern program for the Wurlitzer. Rumors of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and perhaps even a Bruno Mars selection have the Sanfilippo Wurlitzer salivating. It's going to be a fun night. Don't let their youth fool you; these are serious organists who will surprise and thrill you with their exceptional talent. Doors open at 6:30 pm for touring, with the concert at 8 pm. Tickets are $40 each. Click here for Summer Concert Tickets The Carousel pavilion will be open after the concert.

Announcing the Chicago-area professional premiere of the work last summer, Ravinia president and CEO Welz Kauffman called Mass “a giant, exhilarating work that was misunderstood in its day, and audiences need to hear it”—the Tribune ’s Howard Reich agreed in his review, proclaiming it “simply quintessential, stylistically unbound, anything-goes Bernstein, presented on the grandest scale possible.” Don’t let the title fool you; this exciting musical theater piece is more like Hair than church!

Over 75% of the flowering plants on earth rely on animals and insects for pollination, including nearly 75% of our food crops. Without these creatures such as hummingbirds, bats, bees, beetles, butterflies, and flies, these plants would not be able to produce fruits and seeds, which would be devastating to people and the planet. Join Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods in bringing attention to the importance and plight of the pollinator in this group art exhibition. We are accepting work in all visual media and styles that feature or are in some way related to pollinators.

Junie B. Jones, the Musical
Marriott Theatre
10 Marriott Drive
Lincolnshire, IL 60069
Voice: 847.634.0200

Created by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the team that brought you Dear Edwina, comes Junie B. Jones, The Musical – a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books, brought to life in a genuinely comical (and not strictly-for-kids) musical developed by TheatreworksUSA.

It's Junie B.'s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie's friend, Lucille, doesn't want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal, and first grade has never been more exciting. Awaken a young person's desire to read with the sassy little diva, Junie B. Jones, and her adventures in first grade.

A special one-hour presentation for kids (and parents) of all ages. All performances followed by a Question & Answer session with the cast.

Please note: all patrons, regardless of age, need a ticket.

Pentatonix: The World Tour with Rachel Platten at Ravinia Festival
Ravinia Festival
418 Sheridan Road
Highland Park, IL 60035
Voice: 847.266.5100

The multiplatinum-selling quintet Pentatonix boasts not only three Grammy Awards and nearly 10 million albums sold, but also 15.5 million subscribers on its YouTube channel, which has over 3.4 billion views. Moreover, nine of the group’s albums have made Billboard’s top 10, including back-to-back number ones in 2015’s Pentatonix and 2016’s A Pentatonix Christmas, and its original track “Can’t Sleep Love” is a gold-certified single, joining their renditions of “Mary, Did You Know?” and “Hallelujah” as a top seller. Pentatonix also appeared in the feature film Pitch Perfect 2 and has had two holiday specials on NBC. In the past year, the quintet released the first volume of its PTX Presents series of Pentatonix-curated modern pop performances and also released its fourth holiday album, Christmas Is Here!

Few artists in the past decade have struck a chord of hope and resilience like Emmy Award winner Rachel Platten did with her empowering hit “Fight Song.” Listeners instantly adopted the transformative anthem as their own, linking tales of personal empowerment around the globe. Platten has topped numerous radio and digital charts worldwide on the way to multiplatinum sales with the track, a feature of her major-label debut Wildfire, which also included the Billboard Hot 100 hit “Stand By You.” She reconnected with audiences and amplified personal strength with “Broken Glass” off 2017’s Waves, and most recently Platten released a dedication and anthem for expectant moms—while one herself—in “You Belong.”

Dan Petty & The Heartshakers
Genesee Theatre
203 N. Genesee Street
Waukegan, IL 60085
Voice: 800.982.2787
When he was in high school, Dan Grennes was told he bore a striking resemblance to Tom Petty. When he attended Boston's Berkley School of Music he was told the same thing and again when he performed in the rock musical Rock of Ages in Las Vegas. His next career move was an easy choice: he formed Petty and the Heartshakers, celebrating the music and legacy of the rock 'n' roll legend.

On stage, Grennes surrounds himself with top-notch musicians, including the former drummer for The Cult and the former bassist with Marilyn Manson. Every song is performed to perfection. "You can’t tell the difference. These guys are crazy great," said a California festival president.

Enjoy an incredibly organic, yet accurate tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, as Dan Grennes channels the late rock legend in a very personal way. Come out and hear it for yourself. The show is filled with all your favorites – and there are a lot of them!

Darling Grenadine: the Musical
Marriott Theatre
10 Marriott Drive
Lincolnshire, IL 60069
Voice: 847.634.0200

A new musical... with a twist

Harry is a charming songwriter whose fanciful view of the world rivals the Technicolor of any MGM classic. But as Harry floats through the kind of Manhattan life that dreams are made of, he suddenly finds himself confronted with the idea that a dream may be exactly what it is. And reality isn’t nearly as beautiful.

Told with a rich contemporary score, Darling Grenadin peels away the layers of musical comedy tropes to explore the friction between romance and reality, denial and heartbreak. With its surprising melding of whimsical humor and serious themes, this bittersweet new musical brings us something magical, moving, and boldly unique.

Super Storm is a lively and engaging piece that demonstrates to young audiences that not all opera was written once upon a time, long ago—this is a current, exciting art form! Opera for the Young’s original creation will showcase individuality and cooperation. Four very different vocalists discover their unique strengths when caught in a storm of epic proportions. Sixteen students from Reach Teach Play join the professionals onstage to play abandoned cats and dogs hiding out in the same cave during the bad weather. The value of diversity in our society, an educated understanding of responsible care of domestic animals, and extreme weather (including electricity and magnetism!) will provide appealing themes and topics for discussion after the show.

Long Grove Irish Days

228 Robert Parker Coffin Road
Long Grove, IL 60069
Updated information coming soon.
Historic Downtown Long Grove will once again pay tribute to the Emerald Isle this Labor Day. All eyes will be smiling – Irish or otherwise – when the Historic Downtown Long Grove Business Association presents Irish Days, September 1 – 3, a family-friendly celebration of Irish culture, music, food and drink. The timeless town’s cobble-stone walkways get painted a shade of green with bagpipers, folk bands, dancers and Irish merchandise during this free outdoor festival.

All weekend long, Irish Days 2018 will feature ongoing activities and entertainment (sponsored by Paddy’s on the Square). Some of Chicago’s top Irish musicians, singers and dancers are taking the stage in Fountain Square, including Rory Makem, The Shannon Rovers Bagpipe Band, The McNulty Irish Dancers, Gavin Coyle, The Chancey Brothers, Joe Cullen & Kathleen Keane, and many more (the full 3-day lineup can be found at http://longgrove.org/festivals/irish-days/). Another favorite sight at Irish Days is the Irish Dog Competition. All dogs are Irish on Irish Days, but those who dress the part are given extra credit. Each day, a panel of children judges will crown an Irish Doggie King, Queen, Prince and Princess. The contest is open to any dog whose owner enters them the day-of at the competition area located by the Long Grove Information Center (308 Old McHenry Rd).

Harrington’s Catering and Deli will return to fuel visitors with hand-carved corned beef sandwiches, fish and chips, and other traditional Irish foods. Additionally, there will be an area selling freshly-tapped craft beers, including Irish-themed suds from Long Grove’s Buffalo Creek Brewing, Guinness Stout and other brews / non-alcoholic drinks to quench all thirsts – young or old. While a “Wee Ones” area will host Irish-themed crafts, face-painting, and games for kids, perhaps the most excitement and biggest laughs of the weekend will come each day at the Best-Looking Men’s Legs in a Kilt contest. Interested male contestants should wear their best kilt and register at the event.

Finally, Irish Days will again feature a Gaelic Tent in Fountain Square that promotes awareness of the Irish language and genealogy. Representatives from the Irish American Heritage center will be on hand throughout the 3-day weekend to discuss Irish cultural opportunities on the Northwest side of Chicago.

Voice: 800.982.2787
From 1969-1975, nobody produced more Top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night. They churned out an astonishing 21 consecutive Top 40 songs, resulting in 11 Top 10 hits, three #1 singles and 12 straight gold albums. And with three distinct vocalists, their music was incredibly diverse, landing songs on the pop, rock, country and R&B charts. As singer Danny Hutton told The Fayetteville Observer, "If you don’t like a song, just wait. You'll probably like the next one."

Their concerts are all about having a good time. "We're not political," Hutton went on to say, "We just like to get people…to forget about everything and leave with a big smile on their face."

Come out and "Celebrate" the music of Three Dog Night and bring a little joy to your world.

Kicking off the evening is Chicago's very own Voyage, a classic arena-rock band that has opened for Night Ranger, Blue Öyster Cult and Foghat.

And while their name may be confusing – two gifted musicians are the primary performers, one on piano, one on cello – their music is not.

They've become well-known for their classical/pop mashpups, like pairing Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake with Shawn Mendes' In My Blood; Vivaldi's Winter with Disney's Let It Go; and Beethoven's 5th Symphony with OneRepublic's Secrets.

Their first six studio albums reached #1 on the Billboard Classical Album and New Age Album charts. Their latest release, Limitless, features a creative interpretation of Epiphany by K-pop boy band BTS and is currently trending on YouTube.

The Piano Guys have sold out concerts in England, Germany, Hungary and Japan. They've played Carnegie Hall. Now, they'd like to play for you at The Genesee. It's an exhilarating performance you won't want to miss.

When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow, takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. Celebrate the holidays with one of the most beloved family musicals of all time – featuring “Food, Glorious Food” and “As Long as He Needs Me.”

Art Exhibition: Head in the Trees
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods
21850 N. Riverwoods Rd.
Riverwoods, IL 60015
Voice: 224.633
In Head in the Trees, artist Kaye Buchman addresses themes relating to the natural forces and regenerative energies found in our physical environment and the vital stories they tell. Her large scale drawings and mixed-media paintings begin with watercolor under-paintings and spills inspired by algae blooms overlaid with intricate pen & ink drawings. Her inspiration was found in the quiet presence of Ryerson Woods, the lively water currents of Lake Michigan, and the otherworldly qualities of southern Illinois' Shawnee National Forest.

While researching native plant and tree colonies, migratory bird routes, and water currents for this series of work, Buchman was drawn to the life-affirming relationships that exist amongst these ecosystems and the messages they convey about our inter-connectedness. She was also been reminded of the importance of natural spaces for igniting imaginative thought and creative action. With a nod to fairytales and myths, and the potency of the whole of nature as an enduring metaphor, her goal is to bring attention to the intrinsic power of our natural environment and the responsibility we all share in ensuring its survival.

A Retrospective on the Caricatures of Native Son Frank Willmarth
Barrington History Museum
212 W. Main Street
Barrington, IL 60010
Voice: 847.381.1730
Frank “Pancho” Willmarth was born right here in Barrington in 1906. After attending the University of Missouri as a journalism major and writing for a humorous newspaper during his time at the university, Frank headed west with hopes of pursuing a career where he could put his artistic talent to use. His travels took him all over the United States where he would sketch the people and the places that surrounded him where ever he was.

The first sketch he sold was after a football game in Salt Lake City, when his date never showed up he decided to sketch various aspects of the game and sold them to a local newspaper for a dollar. He was now a paid artist…. Frank’s true success would be realized in California.

Though still travelling throughout the state to sketch caricatures at fairs, carnivals, vacation spots and college campuses, his first major opportunity came in Los Angeles. Frank was a very kind and likeable man who got along with most people he met his sense of humor was contagious. This incidentally led to a great many connections, and an opportunity was given to Frank to sketch the who’s who in Hollywood for the Brown Derby Restaurant.

The Derby’s walls were lined with sketches of famous celebrities that would frequent the restaurant during the golden age of Hollywood. A great deal of the Brown Derby’s caricatures were done by Frank himself, which allowed him to meet some of the nation’s biggest stars.

His first job for the derby was to sketch Mae West and Rocky Marciano. Later on in his career he would be hired by the San Francisco Press club to sketch the club’s many guests who were not only Hollywood celebrities, but foreign diplomats, U.S. presidents, famous authors, and the occasional astronaut or FBI agent. Frank had the opportunity to get to know some of the world’s greatest individuals.

After an amazingly interesting career, Frank would eventually settle down with his wife Gertrude and their four children in an old mining town in Sierra County called Downieville where Frank was a columnist writing humorous articles for the Mountain Messenger, a local newspaper. Frank lived out the rest of his days surrounded by his loving family and comforted by the memories and remarkable stories he had accumulated throughout his 96 years on Earth. Frank died in 2002 but this exhibit aims at resurrecting the man known as “Pancho”.

Dormant winter shrubs and deciduous tamarack conifers await a warming of their roots to begin again their active life. While we may be ready for signs of spring, Volo Bog is still offering signs of winter activity. Deer tracks, rabbit scat & the meandering footprints of raccoons all reveal activity in Volo Bog. Peeking through the snow, carnivorous pitcher plants begin to show signs of greening with the lengthing days. Join a guided tour of this fascinating ecosystem - Illinois' only remaining open-water quaking bog - a National Natural Landmark!
