“The Insider's Guide” Of Where To Go And What To Do In Chicago
The Harris Theater for Music and Dance, which is owned and operated through the University of Chicago, proudly sits at the North edge of Millennium Park behind the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. The theater was born in the famous park back in 2003 and has since been recognized worldwide for its innovations.
The Harris Theater became the first multi-use performance venue in the area built since 1929 and has grown to host 30 diverse companies on their stage. The theater, with its modern touches, and bay-view windows, supports local and national arts in dance and music. Their approach is to hopefully bring small dance companies together to create art for all who choose to come to watch a breathtaking performance done by local, national, and international talent.
With constant attention in the press, the Harris Theater has much to offer to all those interested in music and dance. The theater itself has 1,499-seats and has three levels to sit at for your enjoyment.
The Harris Theater offers some of the best entertainment in the Chicagoland area and refuses to disappoint. With that being said, it's always important to keep the culture going and encourage future generations to always explore their interests and passions, including music and dance.
