Student Rush: $15 Tickets for Sketches of Blue and River North Dance Chicago

I've been so excited for this week for months! We're finishing up our Miles Davis Festival this week and college students have the opportunity to celebrate this legendary trumpeter with us for only $15.

Sketches of Blue: An Orbert Davis Tribute to Miles
Thursday, April 14 at 7:30 pm

You won't want to miss one of Chicago's most treasured trumpeters, Orbert Davis, pay homage to Miles Davis. Act 1, entitled Kind of Blue features the Orbert Davis Sextet with Ari Brown and Ernest Dawkins. You'll hear a world premiere in Act 2 as the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble performs Sketches of Spain (Revisited) which is adapted and composed by Orbert Davis himself.

River North Dance Chicago
Saturday, April 16 at 8:00 pm

I experienced this dynamic dance company for the first time in college, and I hope you will too. Become a part of history with us this weekend as River North Dance Chicago performs the world-premiere, Simply Miles, Simply Us. Artistic Director (and former saxophone player) Frank Chaves choreographs the piece and takes inspiration from the music of the legendary trumpeter, Miles Davis.

You can get $15 Student Rush tickets one hour before show time at the Auditorium Box Office (located at 50 E. Congress Pkwy). Remember to bring your valid college ID; there's also a limit of two tickets per ID. Student Rush tickets and locations are subject to availability and cannot be reserved in advance.
