Image for Music Institute Establishes New Campus in Downtown Chicago

Jan 06, 2017

The Music Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) has announced an additional Chicago teaching campus, broadening its network of locations to eight in the Chicago metropolitan area. The 87-year-old institution, which serves more than 2,000 students of all ages and ability levels, has entered into a partnership with St. James Cathedral, located at 65 E. Huron Street in the heart of one of the nation’s busiest urban environments, just one block from “The Magnificent Mile.”

Music Institute Trustee and Chicago resident David Heroy said, “Downtown residents have struggled with access to the Music Institute’s excellent programs for many years. Now music students and enthusiasts will benefit from the Music Institute’s increased presence at multiple Chicago locations.”

“Our partnership with St. James Cathedral, a musical powerhouse in its own right, allows the Music Institute of Chicago to reach more students who are hungry for music education,” commented Music Institute President and CEO Mark George. “That’s why we welcome all students, including beginners and casual players, as well as advanced musicians.”
