LOLLAPALOZZA

Music In The Key of Chicago

You heard us right! In support of Chicago's diverse and legendary music industry, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), and BandWith Chicago teamed up to bring the local music scene to Lollapalooza. ​BandWith students opened Music in the Key of Chicago with 10 mins of pure excitement and joy from our Hope Jr. Drumline and WestDance team, followed by specially curated performances by Chicago-area artists and talent. We were so honored for this opportunity to help represent our beautiful city.

TITAN BAND

The Titan Band offers quality instrumental music instruction and ensemble play to students. We believe in the importance of giving children a venue to share their talents with both their immediate community as well as the community at large. As with each of our sites, we participate in regular assemblies and celebrations.  Currently 38 students are in the Titan Band.
