The Music Institute of Chicago welcomed 300 guests to its 2019 Anniversary Gala last month in Chicago. The event raised more than $850,000 from a combination of table sponsorships, ticket sales and outright contributions.

Musical highlights included a New Orleans brass band procession; young musicians from the Community Music School; award-winning students from the Music Institute’s renowned Academy, a training center for gifted pre-
college musicians; young string students from Third Coast Suzuki Strings, a violin program on Chicago’s Northwest Side in collaboration with the YMCA of Metro Chicago; and a surprise finale performance by 2019 Dushkin Award recipient Wynton Marsalis (above, second from right), alongside Music Institute students.

In addition to the award to Mr. Marsalis, the Music Institute of Chicago honored King and Caryn Harris with the Cultural Visionary Award for Chicago and Susan Charles with the Richard D. Colburn Award for Teaching Excellence.
