  • Global Dance Party

    The Global Dance Party series offers an exciting opportunity to experiment with dance styles from around the globe. Each evening will feature a dance class followed by two hours of music from live bands or DJs in our Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall.

  • The Cook County Revelers

    The Cook County Revelers began playing for barn dances in 1989, when new Chicagoan, Paul Tyler, joined forces with Fred Campeau and Steve Rosen, erstwhile members of the Volo Bogtrotters, the Chicago area's top old-time string band. Just a few years later, Tyler joined the Bogtrotters. The trio presents a stripped down version of the Bogtrotter wall of sound. Campeau's driving banjo and Rosen's creatively throbbing guitar are the perfect complement for Tyler's distinctive mix of traditional Midwestern fiddle tunes.
