The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee will present a free concert featuring saxophonist Max Bessesen on Sunday, February 12th at 2 pm. Praised for his “saxophone virtuosity” by Downbeat Magazine, Max is a young composer and performer based in New York City. A former resident of Independence Park, Max performed a holiday jazz concert for the Fine Arts series in 2020, which was recorded due to the pandemic. We are thrilled to have Max back in Chicago and performing for us in person! He’ll be playing a mix of original compositions and jazz standards. Joining Max are Ethan Philion, bass, Dave Miller, guitar and Greg Artry, drums.
The concert will be held at Irving Park Lutheran Church, 4100 N. Harding Ave. The concert is free, but donations to support future programming are always welcome. The program is subject to change.
The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee, now in its 29th season, was created by Roger Bingaman, Director of Music at Irving Park Lutheran Church. The intent of the series is to bring high quality, professional music and theatrical events to the northwest side of Chicago. The series is a program of Carlson Community Services, a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to connect the Irving Park community with programs that enrich lives through education, culture and service.
