2012/13 Season


If you are new to Mostly Music Chicago, this is what we do...

Mostly Music Chicago is an independent non-profit organization which presents chamber music concerts in the intimate settings for which they were composed.  After the concert, there is a delicious reception with an opportunity to speak to the artists.  This season has four very special Sunday afternoons planned in venues both private and public.

Behind the scenes, we present a number of concerts to audiences that cannot come to us. This season we are partnering with Communities in Schools Chicago, an organization that assists in the identification of CPS schools that would like to receive concerts. 

Mostly Music Chicago is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Mostly Music Chicago is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
We thank The Saints for their continued support.
