Jazzin' at the Shedd

Take a sip of summer at Jazzin’ at the Shedd. Every Wednesday evening, move to the rhythms of Chicago’s top jazz musicians—and be moved by the pulsing rhythms of spotted jellies, the shimmering slow dance of false herrings and more in Shedd’s new special exhibit, Underwater Beauty. Combine a cocktail with great music, the city skyline, fireworks and beauty worth saving—only at Shedd.
