New Show for Kids in Chicago Parks!

Chicago Folklore Ensemble’s new show, Lift Every Voice, premieres this month with three free performances hosted by Night Out in the Parks!

Lift Every Voice uses the power of music to engage children and families in celebrating African-American and Latin-American freedom movements in Chicago. Guided by storytellers Sojourner Zenobia and Mercedes Inez Martinez, kids will sing along with classic freedom songs, clap rhythms, learn movements, and absorb important lessons of local history through theater and music. Chicago Folklore Ensemble’s fun performance will inspire kids with a love of music and a desire to make a difference in the world.
