Fire in Boomtown

with Amy Lowe & Megan Wells

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

Grades 3-8

Join Amy and Megan for a multi-disciplinary mix of music, commentary, theater and history as they recount the story of The Great Chicago Fire of 1871, and paint a vivid picture of a city that grew too fast with far too little planning. Highlights include the catchy song, “One Dark Night,” that dispatches and captures the legend that vilified Mrs. O'Leary and her lantern-kicking cow for the raging inferno that almost destroyed an entire city.
