More dates


welcome to the 2017-2018 season! we have an exciting line up of performances, collaborations, and projects!



Élevé launches its second season!  This residency at Ovation Chicago with Rhine Hall Distillery elevates the concert experience to “another world-one of magic and story.” We invite other artistic performers to collaborate in, creating diverse programs that reveal new connections through chamber music. Guest performers include but are not limited to: visual artists, poets, actors, and other instrumentalists. Unconventional, exciting, and uniquely social, come experience this one-of-a-kind evening!  

The first performance of Élevé is October 18th with visual artist Yasmin Ali.


IndustryNight is now entering its 4th season! Industry Night marries an intimate performance series with collaboration beyond the music industry, and envelopes the audience into a “unique and fun music experience unlike any other in Chicago.” For each IndustryNight, Bow & Hammer collaborates with a different small business to offer a petite presentation pleasing to all your senses, especially your social ones! After unwinding with friends old and new, enjoy a short performance by B&H. Then share your voice through a vote for your favorite musical selection of the evening, which makes its victory lap at the subsequent Industry Night 

The first IndustryNight is Tuesday, September 26th at 8:00pm. We'll kick off the season with Metric Coffee and our new Bow & Hammer blend of beans!


The Promontory

Starting in January, we'll have a 3 month residency at the Promontory! Chamber Sunday's will happen every 3rd Sunday of January, February, and March. We'll be collaborating with spoken word artist, Harold Green and cellist, Andrew Briggs. Each program will highlight each artist individually and culminate with a performance of everyone together. An added bonus is simply going to the Promontory. With doors opening at 2:30pm, go early for brunch or stay after for dinner. It'll be a great day in Hyde Park. Final details coming soon!
