Celebrate the Winter Solstice at Links Hall

26th Anniversary Winter Solstice Concerts

Wed, December 21, 2016

6:00 am

Links Hall At Constellation

Chicago, IL


The Winter Solstice Concerts enjoys their fourth year in Links Hall’s new home, a crossroads for experimental music, Jazz and the performing arts.

This hour long performance utilizes a wide array of percussion instruments from North Africa, the Middle East, and East India, as well as Western orchestral instruments. Drake and Zerang also use the Frame Drum that has its origin in ancient Mesopotamia, and a variety of hand drums, including dumbek, table, rukk, conga, djimbe, and tambourine, concentrating on long rhythmic cycles and structured improvisations. Drake and Zerang are veterans of the Chicago world music, new music, and jazz scenes, and have performed together nationally and internationally. The concerts began as a single concert in 1990 and expanded to three concerts due to increasing demand in the intimate confines of Link’s Hall studio.

As usual, Michael and Hamid will perform their Winter Solstice duo concerts at 6:00 AM on Dec 21, 22, 23. In addition to this, the evenings of Dec 21 and 22 will feature bands and ensembles that Michael and Hamid play with frequently.

A limited number of tickets are available for purchase at the door at 5:30 a.m. the morning of each concert.
