Host

We look forward to welcoming you to the first chamber music concert at the Ingersoll-Blackwelder House. As we all move inside as the temperature cools and leaves fall, we can open our senses to music. See you on the tenth of November promptly at 6:30 PM for a concert start time of 7:30 PM. After the performance including that of Vivaldi, to continue to echo the influence of Italy on culture, we will share a traditional Tuscan dessert with the guests.

The home is 25 minutes from the Loop by car or via the Metra line. The Rock Island Metra station (111th) is two blocks from the residence. There is free parking on the street.

The home is in the Beverly/Morgan Park Neighborhood - also known as the Ridge Historic District - of Chicago. The Ridge Historic District is the largest historic district in Chicago with homes once owned by the founder of Rotary Club International, the Walgreens, and Brian Piccolo (whose story inspired the book and movie Brian's Song).

Also, the neighborhood boasts homes designed and built by famous architects such as Walter Burley Griffin, Frank Lloyd Wright, Tallmadge and Watson, Daniel Burnham, and Howard Van Doren Shaw.

Further, present-day Chicago architect and Beverly resident, James Gorski of the firm Bureau of Architecture and Design, has helped pull together an exhibit that celebrates what he calls "arguably, the most significant architectural neighborhood in the city of Chicago." "Elevation: The Rise of Beverly/Morgan Park," an exhibition continuing through December at the Beverly Arts Center (BAC), 2407 W. 111th St., Chicago. The exhibit aims to tell the story of how the impressive elevation of the highest hill in Chicago came to be, and how it continues to inspire the architecture and culture of the community.
