Farmers Market Concert: Holy Cross Marimba Ensemble

From Sunday, July 28, 12:00 pm until 1:15 pm

Enjoy the Farmers Market Concert: Holy Cross Marimba Ensemble from noon to 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, July 28, 2019, at the William McKinley Memorial in McKinley Park, 3705 S. Archer Ave., Chicago.

Direct from the Back of the Yards neighborhood, the Holy Cross/IHM Marimba Ensemble celebrates music from the Mexican folk tradition. The marimba is the more resonant and lower-pitched cousin to the xylophone and was born in Africa. However, its use has grown in Latin American countries since the 17th century.

Presented by the McKinley Park Advisory Council, the Farmers Market concert series dovetails off the McKinley Park Farmers Market, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays at the William McKinley memorial in McKinley Park.
