Located in the heart of vibrant downtown Evanston, MIC’s Evanston East Campus (located at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Grove Street) is a cultural hub for the community. With teaching studios and rehearsal rooms, students of all ages are engaged in weekly private lessons, group classes, ensemble rehearsals, and many other musical activities.


Our friendly reception staff is ready to assist with registration, billing, and room scheduling questions. They also can provide parking meter change and restaurant recommendations. The Evanston East Campus is also the home of Nichols Concert Hall, an elegant performance venue that presents concerts featuring not only MIC students and faculty, but numerous other Chicago-area artists and ensembles.
