Farmers Market Concert: Holy Cross Marimba Ensemble

From Sunday, August 19, 2018 12:00 pm until 1:15 pm

The McKinley Park Advisory Council and the McKinley Park Farmers Market present a performance by the Holy Cross Marimba Ensemble from noon to 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, August 19, 2018, at the William McKinley Memorial in McKinley Park, 3705 S. Archer Ave., Chicago.

Part of the concert series running in tandem with the McKinley Park Farmers Market, the Holy Cross Marimba Ensemble performance celebrates music from Mexican folk traditions. The more resonant and lower-pitched cousin to the xylophone, the marimba was born in Africa, but has grown in Latin American countries since the 17th century.
