Intonation is doing fantastic work with Chi-Town kids in underserved areas all over the city. Currently teaching nearly 400 students at 10 sites around the city, IMW provides a safe and positive environment for kids who have few other options. We were just at Alhambra Palace for Go Red for Women, and it's a magnificently magical place that's a fitting showcase for these talented kids.
On Saturday, March 24th, The Intonation Music Workshop will present its annual Rock-N-Pop Circus, a Saturday afternoon showcase featuring 10 student bands at Alhambra Palace.
All the bands in the Rock-N-Pop Circus are comprised of students from IMW after school music programs around the city. This year’s event will include performances from Blue Swagg, Chi-Rockers, BluTube, Dangerous Rockstars, Flamin' Hotz, Neon Park, Pop Tots, Rex, RhymeSchool, and Scorps!
*This show will also feature a special appearance from Chicago Rap Legend Psalm One and her students in Rhymeschool, a joint program with IMW focused on hip-hop!
The family-friendly musical extravaganza will also feature Rock Star Face Painting, Punk Rock Hair Styling, a musical petting zoo, and more!
Saturday, March 24, 1:00-5:00 PM
1240 W. Randolph St., Chicago IL
Tickets for adults are $5 in advance, $7 at the door. Kids are $3 in advance, $5 at the door. Children under 5 are free!
The students in the after-school Intonation Music Workshop program -- all between the ages of 6 and 17 -- learn the rudiments of the instruments in rock music, form bands, and begin to play shows for their communities and beyond. Past Intonation bands have performed on stages at Lollapalooza, Millennium Park, and the Bud Biliken Parade, to name a few.
“Arts programs are disappearing from schools at an alarming rate,” says Simons, “And organizations like ours are helping fill the gap. Our workshop exists not only to teach kids music, but also all the other things that playing music instills in us – confidence, teamwork, the satisfaction of setting a goal and achieving it.”
