With only three shows left in John Devens' inaugural season for the Givins Castle and Heritage Gallery concert series, we want to thank everyone who has participated so far! We are so proud to have been able to bring together first-class musicians with wonderful Beverly audiences -- not only to raise funds for the Castle capital project but, more importantly, to help build and sustain music-based community on Chicago's South Side.
Check back here for next year's line-up, and click here if you would like to volunteer. And again, thank you for making this season so phenomenal!
It is with great sadness that we at the Givins Castle & Heritage Gallery Concert Series report the recent passing of Dean Miller, Ph.D. Dr. Miller was professor emeritus of history and comparative religion at the University of Rochester, N.Y. He authored the book, “The Epic Hero,” considered an outstanding academic research work on Western mythological heroes.
Dean was a beloved Beverly-Morgan Park community member, and a major benefactor for this concert series. Please remember Dean, and his late wife Martha Swift, when attending these concerts. Our hearts go out to their family.
