Nichols Concert Hall  |  1490 Chicago Avenue, Evanston


Join the Music Institute of Chicago community of parents and families for a festive evening in support of Nichols Concert Hall. MIC Soirée II features world class musical performances and an elegant reception with refreshments and hors d'oeuvres where you can meet the artists and see many familiar faces!

Nichols Concert Hall, built in 1912, is an Evanston landmark building and cultural anchor in Chicago’s North Shore area. Nichols Hall is in continued need of renovation and repair. Ongoing repairs include replacement of the 1980’s era roof, restoration of the interior walls and ceilings, and construction of a new steel frame structure under the existing limestone entrance façade. Your support of this event will enable the maintenance of this beautiful building while preserving the funds that provide exceptional music education and programming to our communities.

 

Tickets start at $90/person, sponsorship opportunities available.
