Interfaith Council Thanksgiving
Thursday November 23 | 11 am

The Hyde Park & Kenwood Interfaith Council presents the annual Thanksgiving celebration, with Eboo Patel giving the address, and the Chicago Children’s Choir leading the music. An offering is taken up for the Hunger Programs. Eboo Patel signs books afterward.


Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society
Saturday January 13 | 8 pm | Bond Chapel

Natural Information Society, a Chicago-based band led by Joshua Abrams, uses traditional and electric instrumentation to develop layered aural environments with a psychedelic feeling. Their music builds on the hypnotic qualities of the guimbri, a three-stringed instrument used by the Gnawan people in West Africa, while also drawing on a range of contemporary forms including jazz, minimalism, and krautrock. Free. Presented by the Renaissance Society.
