For the second year in a row, Chamber Music on the Fox teams up with the City of Elgin and Seigle Foundation to bring another fun, free, family-friendly event to celebrate the arts in Elgin. “Inspired Elgin” will take place on September 18th, 2022, from 1:00-5:00pm on the Civic Plaza (between Hemmens Cultural Center and City Hall).
The afternoon’s events will include pop-up performances, food trucks, arts activities, and an appearance by the Gail Borden Library’s Book Mobile, all on the Civic Center Plaza, but the main event of the day is a concert inside the Hemmens Cultural Center featuring internationally acclaimed pianist Anne-Marie McDermott performing alongside Chamber Music on the Fox’s Chamber Players. Anne-Marie will lead the ensemble in a performance of Schumann’s stunning Piano Quintet as well as a spirited Piano Trio by Ludwig van Beethoven, and she will also perform a solo Sonata to open the program.
The concert will take place at 3:00pm on September 18th, and tickets are free but reservations are required. Tickets can be reserved online at hemmens.org/tickets. The concert will also be streamed to speakers on the Plaza, so non-ticketed attendees will be able to bring blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy from outside.
