Fine Arts

The William D. White Fine Arts Committee has sought to establish and strengthen significant relationships with the artistic and cultural organizations of the city of Chicago.  The Chicago Humanities Festival, the Chicago Children’s Choir, the Merit School of Music, the Chicago Historical Society, Adler Planetarium, Chicago Semester in the Arts, and the School of the Art Institute are all in association with us to make prominent the value excellent artistic expression has in our lives.

Through gifts established, such distinguished artists as:  The Kingfisher Brass Quintet (our annual Easter brass ensemble), the Praetorium Sign Language Choir, Kurt Elling, Jim Post, Josephine Lee, Eric Whitacre with the Apollo Chorus, Willie Pickens, The Wayward Sisters, the Bach and Beethoven Ensemble, Mariachi Sol de Oro, the Lakeside Singers, and the Wiley College Choir have all shared generously their unique gifts with our congregation and those who live and work in the Loop.

If you possess an interest in music, film, poetry, theatre, visual art, or any other artistic discipline, please don’t hesitate to contact Jon Kaplan, chair of the Fine Arts Committee, or Erik Nussbaum, Director of Music and the Arts, to explore how you may participate in one of our ministries.
