Enjoy this monthly opportunity to explore the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum kid-free. Stroll through the exhibits, including the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven, with a craft beer or a glass of wine. Bring your friends and enter the trivia competition or play board games while you listen to live music. Meet some of our resident animals at a live critter connection.
This month’s theme: The Sounds of Summer- Music of the Night
A combination of Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology members, School of the Art Institute of Chicago Sound students, and local musicians: KG Price (percussion), Jen Hill (cello), Frank Harrer (invented instruments), and Christopher Preissing (flute) will engage you in their nature inspired music.
Join us for a soundwalk led by Eric Leonardson exploring our nighttime soundscape.
There is a symphony to witness outdoors on a summer night- from the wind rustling through the trees to a chorus of cicadas. Learn how nature has been one of the world’s best musical inspirations.
