Nestled in a neighborhood bounded by Pulaski on the west, Kimball on the east, Devon on the north and Foster on the south, is Northeastern Illinois University. NEIU is a commuter university; and the students reflect this ethnically diverse area. Take a walk in the neighborhood and you’ll see devout Orthodox Jews on the way to Shabbat services, women in beautiful Indian dress, Pakistani cab drivers, and college students in jeans and T-shirts. But perhaps you didn’t know that NEIU is a mecca for the arts.
The University has a first rate visual arts curriculum, with gallery shows by students and visiting artists throughout the year. The music department is thriving: there are at least two fully staged operas each academic year, which are presented in the Auditorium. Virtually every week there may be a student or faculty recital in the Recital Hall. And the monthly Jewel Box series, which WFMT broadcasts with host Carolyn Paulin, brings in nationally and internationally renowned performers; and provides a showcase for the music department’s talented faculty.
We have four concerts; check here for a new concert each week.
