For The Record - SHDHS in Chicago, Day 2

Chicago (That Toddlin' Town) – Day 1

We made it! After a long day we’ve arrived at our hotel but not until we toddled all over this toddling town. While that will only make sense to Sinatra-era music fans there are Buddy Guy fans among our readers who will be as excited as we were to sit in Buddy Guy’s Legends and watch our very own SHDHS Jazz Combo perform for the lunch crowd. We live streamed a portion of the performance so for those who missed it, you’ll find it archived on our Facebook page listed as South Huron District High School Music Program. By the way, it’s not uncommon to look into the dark corners and see the legend himself casually taking in the music but sadly for us, Buddy Guy was performing in Springfield, MO today. His Grammy Awards are housed at Buddy Guy’s Legends and if you check out our Instagram feed, @shdhsmusic, you’ll see one of them.

The Shedd Aquarium was our next stop where we experienced fish large and small, crabs, whales and a few very large spiders from every corner of the Earth. Harbour seals and dolphins are just as entertaining as 50 students on a field trip!

Chicago has one of the most beautiful parks. Millennium Park is over 24 acres of art, amazing architecture, events and gardens. Of course, a visit to the park isn’t complete without a group photo at the famous Cloud Gate sculpture, more popularly known as “The Bean.”

After dinner at the Hard Rock Café we were off for a little retail therapy on the famous Magnificent Mile. With stores like Bloomingdales, Sak’s 5th Avenue and Burberry there may have been more dreaming than shopping but window shopping is a sport everyone can enjoy.

Now it’s off to bed to rest up for our big day tomorrow. It’s all about Habitat for Humanity!
