The Music Institute of Chicago’s fourth annual jazz festival celebrates the enduring legacy of Chicago’s own Benny Goodman. On Friday, November 1, guest clarinetist Victor Goines joins an all-star jazz faculty quintet for an evening of high-stepping swing. The festival continues on Saturday with an afternoon documentary film screening and panel discussion (details to follow) and concludes with a concert of music that Goodman performed, commissioned, or premiered.
