About the Home

Breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline welcome you as you enter this high-rise home.  See where the river branches meet and take in the modern elegance of this not-so-humble abode.  Featuring a private collection of masterful Bauhaus artworks as well as Outsider artworks, the quartet is joined by another piece of art: the owner's Fazioli piano.

About the Concert

Concert 3 of this three-part concert series showcases Robert Schumann's 1849 quartet cycle Minnespiel; Lita Grier's Five Songs for Children, composed between 1962-1999; and a grand finale set by French composers, culminating with Scène VIII, Act 2 of Francis Poulenc's 1944 comic opera Les Mamelles de Tirésias.

"Who loves not woman, wine and song, remains a fool his whole life long" is actually an English translation of a Martin Luther quote. Who knew that? And what could be more fun to sing about? If you've never been to a Fourth Coast parlor concert, the wine is poured, the women (and men) sing, and the songs flow! You get the chance to relax, enjoy the architecture of an inviting home, and savor a moment of harmony.
