Music in Chicago

You have arrived at one of the best places in the country to see music; after all, Chicago is the home of the blues. You will not have to listen too closely to hear the beats of blues, jazz, indie and other live concerts at great venues like the legendary Kingston Mines or Schubas. The summer months bring the Grant Park Music Festival, where a bottle of wine, a friend and the sounds of classical music make for a perfect evening. Any visit should also include taking in a concert with the acclaimed Chicago Symphony Orchestra. With so many genres and venues to check out, you will surely see the musical soul of Chicago.
