Announcing our VIRTUAL Paint the Town Red!
Thursday, May 21 from 7-8pm
For 10 years, we have hosted our popular free Paint the Town Red concert celebration at Millennium Park, featuring 5,000 young singers from every Chicago zip code, alongside special guest artists. This year’s Paint the Town Red concert will go on, bigger and broader than ever, through a free concert on a digital stage with inspiring messages from special guests including the Honorable Mayor Lori Lightfoot & First Lady Amy Eshleman, Grammy Award-winning artist Chance the Rapper, Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning artist Common, Grammy Award-winning jazz singer Kurt Elling, Grammy Award-winning music director and producer Peter CottonTale and more!
This virtual event will feature a compilation of performances along with uplifting messages from our special guests in honor of our resilient city of champions. The concert will conclude at 8pm in tandem with the country’s nightly #Solidarityat8 program encouraging the public to sing, applaud and flash their house lights in a show of support for front line workers.
