Back by popular demand, First Night Evanston will showcase nearly 40 musical performances for its annual New Year’s Eve extravaganza, including musical guests, a poetry slam, barn dancing, and a wide array of children’s programming.
The lineup features acclaimed jazz violinist Regina Carter’s Southern Comfort, Corky Siegel and Chamber Blues, Chèvere (featuring the Grammy winning harmonica wizard Howard Levy), the acclaimed chamber music ensemble The Rembrandt Chamber Players, poetry from the Poets of Rhino and Slam Poetry master Marc Smith and many more
While the entire New Year’s Eve program is a family affair, First Night Evanston will provide several children’s workshops and activities in the afternoon such as crafts, storytelling, music and even a flea circus.
This year’s celebration features evening events for teens, including a battle of the teen bands (with $500 in prizes) and appearances by the Underage Sugar Addicts, a teen improve group.
The event takes place on December 31, 2014 from 2 p.m. to midnight. Evanston’s Raymond Park, located on Chicago Avenue between Grove and Lake streets, will serve as the celebration’s main home. Performances will be located in multiple indoor venues, all within a two-block radius of the park.
