Requiem in Water - An Evening at the Museum

The McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum is hosting Requiem in Water, a music program and BYOB event at the Museum on Monday evening, October 19th, 7p.m.- 8:30p.m. in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Eastland Disaster.  Friends of the Chicago River commissioned the Suburban Piano Quartet for an original music composition to be premiered at the Bridgehouse. 

Part installation, part musical performance, Requiem in Water is meant to be an immersive experience - audience members will be encouraged to explore the historic bridgehouse and discover the piece in their own way.  Performers will be scattered throughout the five stories of the building, creating an encompassing soundscape that promises to be both unique and moving.

Tickets are only $5.  Please purchase here:
as the event is BYOB/P, please bring your own bottle of refreshment and picnic
