By now we’re probably all sick of the words “the new normal,” and yet here we are looking at a landscape and way of doing business that looks completely different than it did just a few weeks ago. The Ark remains committed to providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere where people enrich their spirits through the power of music…that place has just become a virtual space for the time being. All physical, in person events at The Ark have now been cancelled through May 31, 2020. Many of these cancelled shows have been or will be rescheduled for later dates this fall and into 2021. Please follow The Ark’s website, social media and email newsletter for updated info and new event dates.
So, what are we doing while our doors are physically closed? Rest assured that Ark music lives on! The Ark is happy to announce its new virtual series of livestream Facebook events with the Ark Family Room Series!
We kicked off the series earlier this April with Steve Poltz and the event was a smash success. Coming up in the series: Birds of Chicago on Sunday, April 26; The Accidentals on Friday, May 1; Nora Jane Struthers on Sunday, May 10; Jared Deck on Tuesday, May 12; Rachael Davis with Dominic John Davis on Sunday, May 17; and Chicago Farmer on Thursday, May 21. Donations made during the livestream events support both The Ark and the artists.
