About the event

We are thrilled to bring back our free concert series at Kenwood Gardens! From May to October, we will collaborate with local musicians and instrumental ensembles to bring free concerts to neighbors and friends at Kenwood Gardens each month.

On June 17th, 6-8pm, join us as the JoVia Armstrong Trio performs atmospheric experimental music with grooves, looping, and on-the-fly sampling, in the Gardens. Dr. JoVia Armstrong is an award-winning percussionist, educator, sound artist, composer, and producer. Her polygenre work includes experimental hip-hop, improvisational jazz, and music technology, with concepts from Black social studies, contemplative science, and environmental studies.

In 2020, Rebuild Foundation transformed thirteen formerly vacant city lots into a thriving urban oasis in the Greater Grand Crossing community. The outdoor gardens, which are home to native and regionally appropriate flora and fauna, offer visitors immersive experiences in the natural environment, providing opportunities to engage with health, wellness, music, education and cultural programming amongst carefully curated and sustainably sourced plants and animal life.

The free summer concert series at Kenwood Gardens reinforces Rebuild Foundation’s commitment to providing accessible world-class cultural amenities to neighbors and friends on the South Side. This series is an extension of Rebuild Foundation’s support for local artists and musicians through robust music programming across their sites.

These performances are free, open to the public and appropriate for all ages. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and layer clothing for evenings with chillier forecasts. Seating is first-come, first-serve.
