Logan Center School Matinee Program for students and teachers
The sixth season of the Logan Center School Matinee Program offers a dynamic series of free performances for students and teachers in grades K–12 across the Chicagoland area.
Each matinee features world class artists in engaging educational presentations. Our matinee programs also include teacher workshops prior to each performance designed to support educators in connecting field trip experience with classroom learning and common core learning standards. Our innovative field trips introduce youth to a diverse range of experiences providing opportunities for dynamic learning, critical inquiry, and cultural engagement.
The matinee programs take place throughout the school year in the state-of-the-art Performance Hall at the University of Chicago’s Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E. 60th Street, Chicago, IL 60637. Matinees are offered on weekday mornings throughout the school year from October through May.
If you are interested in further engagement opportunities for your students with the subject matter presented at the Logan Center Matinees, please contact us for information on our Critics Programs.
