Garrison Keillor at John Ronan's Comer Youth Center

Word comes from architect John Ronan that on Friday, September 15th at 7:30 P.M., Garrison Keillor and Friends will be appearing at the recently opened Gary Comer Youth Center, the striking new building he designed for the South Shore Drill Team at 7200 S. Ingleside, at South Chicago Avenue. Keillor's friends will include singer Jearlyn Steele and musician Richard Dworsky, as well as the South Shore Drill Team and Performing Arts Ensemble, itself. Tickets, which are limited, cost only $35.00, and can be reserved by contacting Michelle Priest at or 773/358.4100, by this Friday, September 8th. The show, which will support the center, will be taped for broadcast over NPR.

I'm not quite sure how a Drill Team will come off on radio, but for a measly $35.00, you get to not only hear, but actually see the Drill Team in action, plus be entertained by Garrison Keillor, and get to check out Ronan's stunning new building, which combines classic form with rich color to create a instant landmark in the Grand Crossing neighborhood.
