Chicago: Music, Art & Architecture

As a musician, I am especially attracted to cities that are brimming with art and culture. Chicago, the third largest city in the United States, is  one of them. Its architecture stands out for its design and originality, although many of these iconic buildings were built after the Great Fire of 1871 that left much of the downtown area in ashes. Architects such as Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham and others have left their mark on this Windy City. My personal favorite is the The Pritzker Pavilion at the Millennium Park, by architect Frank Gehry.

Along with architecture Chicago offers a unique experience regarding sculpture which is a great passion of mine. The metropolis is known for its unique public art which includes outdoor works by artists such as Picasso, Miró, Chagall and Abakanowicz and many more.

Having played various times and sharing my music in this city has bound me much closer to it: I visualize my music notes in the air sculpting figures reaching the emotions of people.
