Center Stage for Access and Inclusion
In an effort to encourage Chicagoans and visitors alike to gain a greater appreciation for the beauty and power of inclusion in every facet of our lives, The Chicago Lighthouse will host a unique three-hour summer spectacular concert Saturday, September 14 at Navy Pier featuring performers with and without disabilities. “Center Stage for Access and Inclusion,” which will take place from 11 am to 2 pm on the Navy Pier South Dock (adjacent to Ferris Wheel), will feature stellar performances from singing sensations and epic dancing to comedy and storytelling. Special guest performer will be Avett Ray, a seven-year-old piano YouTube sensation who happens to be visually impaired. Serving as emcee will be one of Chicago’s most engaging personalities, Leon Rogers of WGCI.
