  • Hit the Refresh Button at SCD

    Just a quick note to let you know that SCD is hosting the spring version of Hit Refresh on Thursday, May 5, from 11-4 PM.

  • But Not Silent| Benefit Concert for Ukrainian Orphans

    “What is more opposite than music? The silence of ruined cities and killed people . . . . Support us in any way you can. Any, but not silence.”—Volodymyr Zelenskyy

    Despite the distance between Illinois and Ukraine, the Solideo Quartet and fellow artists seek to respond with music. This chamber music concert features Solideo Quartet, Jupiter String Quartet, and talented graduate students, who will seek to raise support and funding for orphaned children and displaced families in Ukraine.

    This is a casual concert where listeners are invited to come and go at Stage 5 of the KCPA.

    All proceeds will go to ukrainabezsyrit—World Without Orphans—Ukraine. Donations to this cause are encouraged but not required to attend this concert. If you can't make it, we would be so grateful for supporting us from afar! Donate below:
