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 Saturday, August 19, 6-8pm, we are thrilled to invite you to join us as The Meditation Movement takes the stage for an evening of listening, feeling, and moving at Kenwood Gardens. With an intention of reaching deep states of relaxation and spiritual connection, the concert will feature sound from instruments such as singing bowls, bass, saxophone, flute, udu drums, and percussion, led by Jay Taylor. As the sonic experience evolves, you are encouraged to take up space within the gardens and feel your presence flow with music.
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. We kindly ask that all are respectful of our neighbors and ecosystem at the gardens. For these reasons, outside alcohol, cooking grills, and smoking of any kind are not permitted on the grounds. Bag checks will take place at both entrances to the gardens.
