Frances Glessner Lee Birthday Party

  • Glessner House 1800 South Prairie Avenue Chicago, IL 60616 (map)

This celebration, held on the 141st anniversary of the birth of Frances Glessner Lee, will serve as the official public opening of the first phase of restoration of her childhood bedroom. The event will include a delicious variety of hors d’oeuvres from Victory Tap, beverages, music provided by the PaulSun Duo featuring vocalist Suneetha Vaitheswaran and guitarist Paul DiLorenzo, tours of the restoration, recognition of the donor, and birthday cake, of course! A special treat will be the opportunity to view Lee’s meticulously detailed miniature model of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, on loan from the Rosenthal Archives of the CSO, on display for the first time in six years.

Thanks to our Birthday Party sponsors!
