Mark your calendars! Come out and enjoy an annual Chicago holiday tradition that starts over Thanksgiving in 2012 in Millennium Park, when Caroling at Cloud Gate (the Bean) returns on Friday evenings from November 23 through December 16, 2011 at 6 pm during the holiday season. This free program, presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, showcases Chicago choral groups and invites visitors to participate in a holiday sing-along.
Now in its seventh season, Caroling at Cloud Gate has become a cherished tradition in Chicago, with hundreds of singers gathering each week in the Park. Complimentary warm beverages will be provided by Caribou Coffee. Following the 50-minute caroling session, everyone is encouraged to skate at Millennium Park’s McCormick Tribune Ice Rink, one of the most popular winter destinations in the city.
Two of the four choral groups scheduled to lead the caroling this year are the Apollo Chorus of Chicago and the Wicker Park Choral Singers. The remaining groups will be announced later this month. Following the 50-minute caroling session, everyone is encouraged to skate at Millennium Park’s McCormick Tribune Ice Rink, one of the most popular winter destinations in the city.
