The People’s Music School’s annual gala and performance, Let it Shine, welcomes friends, supporters, artistic partners and community leaders to a celebration of over 40 years of social and musical impact in Chicago.

This year’s event, held at Morgan Manufacturing in the Fulton Market district, features a cocktail reception, seated dinner, and opportunities to experience special student and guest artist performances throughout the evening. Funds raised through this event are essential to continuing our programs, which serve nearly 700 students from across Chicago. As The People’s Music School is 100% supported by private donations, our spring gala and signature performance event remains a vital component of our fundraising efforts.

We will be honoring Genevieve Thiers, the groundbreaking entrepreneur (founder of, civic leader and opera singer who embodies the school’s “Raise Your Voice – And Let It Shine” theme. Genevieve will be introduced by incoming 1871 CEO Betsy Ziegler. Jeremy McCarter, co-author of Hamilton: The Revolution with Lin-Manuel Miranda will present an award to Dominique Louis, a Haitian immigrant and long-time teacher at People’s. Jennifer and Ashley Keller and Katy
and Jonathan Kletzel — business leaders, community investors and board members of TPMS — will serve as cochairs
of the event. Grammy-award winning Third Coast Percussion will be one of our special guest artists!

Join us on Friday, May 11th for an unforgettable evening!
