This fun summer concert featured The New Odyssey Band, which offered a unique entertainment experience that included three musicians utilizing 30 different musical instruments. The band performed from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. on the front steps of the Warde Academic Center at the University’s Chicago campus, 3700 W. 103rd St. The concert concluded with a patriotic finale and fireworks display at 9:45 p.m. (dusk). The event was free and open to the public. This year’s fireworks were launched with better audience sight lines in mind.
The community was encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the show. Concessions were available from The Original Rainbow Cone, Gilhooley’s Grande Saloon, Calabria Imports, and Happy Jack’s.
