The Aug. 18 Millenium Park concert with Chevere and friends, Trio Globo, and Chris Siebold, was one of the greatest nights of my life. Thanks to the City of Chicago’s Cultural Affairs Dept, the great Millenium Park staff and the devotion of all of the musicians, the audience of 8,000 loved the music. I hope to do more concerts like this.
