Jazz. Cocktails. The lake. Fireworks. And 32,000 animals. That's Jazzin' at the Shedd!
Jazzin' is the perfect way to celebrate summer! Take in live music while you enjoy the best views of Chicago, fireworks and after-hours access to our aquatic residents.
Tonight's musical entertainment will be provided by Rio Bamba, the Bob Davis Trio and Gray Matters.
Don't forget to join us for a Jazzin' Science Pub at 7 p.m. in Phelps Auditorium. Meet Loyola University biologist Tim Hoellein and Shedd manager of conservation partnerships and programs Jaclyn Wegner and learn about their work in an informal setting where you can relax, enjoy a beverage and ask questions. Tim and Jaclyn will talk Great Lakes trash—the plastic kind. Tim’s litter ecology studies use data on microplastics in Lake Michigan tributaries as well as data on litter collected through volunteer beach cleanups, including those hosted by Shedd. You’ll gain a better understanding of plastic pollution in our aquatic backyard and of how you can help, personally and as an advocate, to reduce it.
See all the details in the tickets link above! Jazzin' at the Shedd is sponsored by Chase.
