Recent graduates of Evanston Township High School have joined forces to host Evanston Cov-AID 2020, a 3-day virtual concert series, celebrating local Evanston musicians and supporting the community they grew up in. The group has partnered with the Evanston Community Foundation (ECF), a local nonprofit whose vision is to build a more equitable Evanston, and will support local relief efforts for those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. ECF has recently launched a $1M Challenge Grant for the Fund and all proceeds from the live stream event will go to local nonprofit organizations who are serving those most severely impacted by the pandemic.
The first-ever virtual event featuring ETHS graduates will include performers Ava Suppelsa, The Foons, Cub-J, Rub N’ Alc, Chicken Bone, Wilson Mather-Glass, Trevor Zemsteff, Friko, and Roger Dat with more artists expected to be announced soon. The event will display a range of music genres from rock and pop, to electronic music and hip hop. The artists will be streaming from all over the world from Nashville to Dublin.
“We all feel connected to Evanston, and at a time like this we want to bring everyone together through music. We have so much talent right here in our own community,” said Cov-AID co-founder Ben Morton, ETHS Graduate Class 2015. “Evanston Cov-AID is a celebration of the talent and community of Evanston,” added Morton.
WHEN: 3-Part Concert Series May 28, May 29, and June 6 beginning at 6 pm.
