ONE OF THE MOST LOVED JAZZ EVENTS IN WEST SUBURBAN CHICAGO Back again in 2018, Main Street Glen Ellyn welcomes you and your picnic basket, wine, chairs and friends to enjoy a day of pure fun and exceptional music. This year's theme is Music and Rhythms of Brazil! A variety of amazing Jazz groups will play continuously as you arrange your picnic spot, pour a glass of wine, stretch your legs and find the treasures that await.
This year's featured artist is Brazilian pianist/composer Breno Sauer of Som Brazil, one of the most important figures in Brazilian music in Chicago for the past 30 years, passed away last year. Breno’s wife Neusa, a singer with Som Brazil, has arranged a tribute to her late husband to be performed during this year’s Jazz Up Glen Ellyn, a welcome and important addition to the festival.
