In its ongoing effort to support arts, music and culture, Celebrate Highwood is hosting its 2nd annual ‘Jazzed Up Dining & Classical Cocktails’ on Saturday, February 17th at 6:30 p.m., to benefit Midwest Young Artists Conservatory (MYAC), the Midwest’s most comprehensive youth music school and ensemble program.
In addition to live jazz, classical and big band musical performances by MYAC students throughout the evening, guests will enjoy appetizers, dinner and dessert from the North Shore’s finest restaurants, as well as an open bar and a silent auction.
The event will be housed in the beautifully transformed army stockade building at Fort Sheridan. Attendees will learn about the building’s history and explored the old prison cells from 1890.
Last year’s event raised $10,000, all proceeds were awarded to talented students admitted to the MYAC programs if they could not afford the tuition.
Tickets to Jazzed Up Dining & Classical Cocktails are $75 per person
