Katie Kadan joins fellow Chicago artists Sandra Antongiorgi and Sadie Woods for a Labor Day Party at City Winery Chicago. Often compared to Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Janis Joplin, Katie Kadan has headlined, performed, and held residences at many of Chicago's (and the nation's) top music venues including the Taste of Chicago, Navy Pier, The Empty Bottle, The ElboRoom, The Hideout, Lincoln Hall, Chop Shop, San Francisco's Boom Boom Room, and the Fillmore Jazz Festival. Kadan's recently released self-titled debut solo album is currently available everywhere and features all original music embodying Kadan's epic vocal prowess. Her blues-infused style of soul-bearing belting is her signature on original and familiar songs alike, with a constant presence of her roots from the church. Kadan's passion for song is equally matched by the power, range, control, and musicality in her voice, where she effortlessly flips from R&B to gut-wrenching rock to songs of longing angst. Kadan's deep talent provides a musical vocabulary of emotions previously not shown by other singers through song.
Friday, November 29; 7:00 and 10:00 p.m.
Dwele is a multi-Grammy Award-nominated, songwriter, producer, multi-instrument musician and vocalist carrying on a Motown-inspired tradition instilled in another era. He has cultivated his own spirited road with five critically acclaimed albums: Subject, Some Kinda, Sketches Of A Man, W.ants W.orld W.omen and Greater Than One. With multiple chart-topping collaborations with rap icon Kanye West, Common, Drake, Wale and many others, Dwele has blazed a trail for this generation's newfound soul/R&B era. He has toured around the globe with sell-out crowds in his wake and still seems to mystify his audience, which makes them eagerly anticipate what his next move will be. Deemed as one of the industry's "Big R&B, Best Kept Secrets" by media queen Wendy Williams, there is no doubt he has surpassed the benchmark of just getting a 'hit record' but more so a 'hit career.'
Dwele was named McDonaldʼs National Brand Ambassador for the face and voice of their launch of McCafe in North America. With a multitude of television appearances on Wendy Williams, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel, MTV Base in Europe and the BBC Studios Live, Dwele shows no signs of slowing.

Sunday, October 27: Queens of Jazz
This brunch experience, featuring a string quartet and vocals, highlights the great ladies of jazz including Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Sarah Vaughan-thanks to irreverent flair of the Chicago Philharmonic Chamber musicians and the elegant style of soprano Adrienne Walker. Walker makes her triumphant return to Chicago from her starring role as Nala in Broadway's The Lion King to join the string quartet in bringing to life classic standards from a golden age. The audience will revel the timeless songs of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Same Cooke, Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington and more. Musicians include soprano Carmen Llop Kassinger on violin, Lisa Fako on violin, Monica Reilly on viola and Margaret Daly on cello.
Sunday, November 24: Cabernet, Clarinet, and Strings
The show showcases Antonín Dvořák Sonatina for Clarinet and String Quartet, Op. 100 and Carl Maria von Weber Clarinet Quintet in B flat, Op. 34. The expressive and sumptuous sounds of Weber's popular Quintet and Dvorak's Sonatina carry the audience away into a warm embrace this fall at City Winery. Dvorak's work, originally written for violin and piano, reminds us of his New World symphony. Written towards the end of his sojourn in the United States and dedicated to his children, its fresh and joyful melodies are punctuated by a hint of nostalgia and longing for home. Written for the clarinet virtuoso Heinrich Baermann, the Clarinet Quintet from Weber is a beloved staple for clarinet quintet. The challenging technical clarinet passages, complimented by string quartet, showcase gorgeous blended textures and finish with a light and jubilant finale. Musicians include Gene Collerd on clarinet, Jennifer Cappelli on violin, Pauli Ewing on violin, Claudia Lasareff-Mironoff on viola and Paula Kosower on cello.
Sunday, December 22: Merry and Bright with Chicago Philharmonic Brass
Chicago Philharmonic Brass joins City Winery in holiday cheer this winter by bringing a holiday-themed concert for the whole family. The show features classic carols including Joy to the World, The Holly and the Ivy, Carol of the Bells, Sleigh Ride and more. Plus, festive favorites from beloved composers including Prokofiev's Troika, Mozart's Schlittenfahrt, Brahms Es ist ein Ros entsprungen and Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. Musicians include Matthew Lee on trumpet, David Inmon on trumpet, Gregory Flint on horn, Reed Capshaw on trombone and Charles Schuchat on tuba.
