Last Friday the Chicago Union League Civic & Arts Foundation marked its 60th anniversary celebration with a gala event that featured several of its former Foundation award winners. Chicago civil attorney Robert Kreisman attended the “Showcase of Stars” and was treated to a night of high quality classical music.
The Civic & Arts Foundation (CAF) is dedicated to sponsoring and supporting young artists in the Chicago community. The CAF not only hosts artistic competitions and concerts, but also provides civic services such as legal services, supportive services for recently divorced parents and children, and civic education.
The success of the CAF’s efforts can be seen in the high level that their former award recipients have achieved. Showcasing their talents were performers Rachel Barton Pine, violinist; Wendy Warner, cellist; Nancy Gustafson, soprano; Rodrick Dixon, tenor; and Jonita Lattimore, a soprano with the Chicago’s Children Choir.
Chicago Attorney Robert Kreisman was among the crowd enjoying the fruits of the CFA’s efforts in the form of a beautiful concert. Like many of the attendees he looks forward to another successful 60 years for the CAF and what their future will bring.
