The upcoming 2021 season at the Bridgehouse Museum will feature six public events by the Fifth House Ensemble, culminating in two live performances of Sounds of the Chicago River. The performances are partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, in partnership with Fifth House Ensemble and the American Indian Center.
April 1, 2021 at 2:00-3:00pm – Deep Listening Workshop
The events will integrate modern and indigenous Deep Listening activities with Native conservation practices, music-making, and storytelling/story gathering workshops. This is the second commissioned performance event at the museum in its 14-year history, and serves as a pilot for future programming at the museum.
