Perks of Practicing in Public

Public Practice is a program The Music Center puts on each year to give amateur musicians the chance to change up their routines and practice their instruments outside.  Specifically, in outside spaces around The Music Center and Grand Park.  Over the past two days we’ve had saxophonists playing in the Grand Park fountain, violinists on the plaza, trumpet players in the park…the list goes on and on.

The participants all applied to take part and each came from a different background and “day job.”  We had consultants, bloggers, accountants, retirees – all people who play music just for the fun of it.  And after talking to a few of them, being part of Public Practice made their musical hobbies even more fun.  Have a look…
