These sketches are from a free concert at Chicago's Preston Bradley Center. I had a free afternoon and was pleasantly surprised by this free concert open to the public. I felt lucky to have my sketchbook. Before the music started I was able to sketch the hall which in itself is inspiring.
As I sat the music acts came on and I drew to the music. The first was a this piece by Joseph Suk.
The next was a piece by Copland.
And the afternoon closed with this Stabat Mater by Pergolesi.
Sitting there and taking it all in, the hall with its frozen music and then the music, I felt I was given a gift.
