DIN AT THE DEN is a monthly series showcasing musical artists whose clarity and focus cut through the noise of our daily lives. On November 14th we celebrate the one year anniversary of this series with Akenya and 5th wave. 5th Wave Collective is a Chicago-based classical music ensemble dedicated to the performance and promotion of music by female composers. Akenya is a multi-genre singer, pianist, composer, and arranger. Her music places a strong emphasis on jazz and incorporates elements of hip-hop, funk, pop, classical, and world music. Also invited are all 24 past musical acts, to reunite and celebrate the Chicago canon that they created. Past posters and special anniversary t-shirts will be for sale.
