Festival Details - "Sandbox Symphony VII"...
Start: Saturday, August 13, 2022 2:00PM
End: Saturday, August 13, 2022 10:00PM
The Sandbox Symphony is about building and celebrating community through healing art practices. Our arts activation targets Southside residents but includes Chicagoans with diverse backgrounds dealing with a plethora of controversies who desire inspiration. Our goal for the Sandbox Symphony is to create an inclusive space for positive impact through alternate healing methods. We use sound, yoga, movement, dance, visual arts, and social practice to stimulate minds differently. The Sandbox Symphony provides a safe place to experience healing art practices where people can engage at their own pace, taking the time one needs to enjoy, express themselves and be active in their healing. Testimonials show that those who engage in our interactive art exhibition, live performances, yoga, and meditation have been rejuvenated and inspired to engage in new activities. By communing with like-minded individuals, we hope to end cycles of negativity in our community and across the city.
We will be filming so look your best and enjoy one of Chicago best features the lakefront.

Brother El, the founder and host of Sandbox Symphony, stands as an arts innovator on Chicago’s hip hop and electronic music scenes. Beyond his traditional performances throughout the city, he’s recently been acting as an ambassador for Chicago, the city where he was born and raised. His unique approach to music creation involves a deep yet warm and welcoming spontaneous composition, which has been featured on Fox 32 News, CHIRP Radio, and BBoy Tech Report. He recently received the prestigious Illinois Arts Council Fellowship for his groundbreaking approaches to sound.
Within the last few years, Brother El has focused on promoting and creating original arts education programs in his community for youth on the South and West Sides. During the Sandbox Symphony, Brother El will play a fully-improvised set using analog synthesizers, drum machines, and sequencers. This event also features a stellar line-up of creatives from the Oakwood/North Kenwood neighborhood.
