Corey Wilkes has established himself as one of the best improvising trumpeters in the modern era. Having the skill and maturity to approach avant-garde to mainstream jazz standards along he combines them with his own unique sensibilities. Corey continues to bring his brand of musicianship and talent to the forefront of the genre.

He picked up the trumpet for the first time at the age of 10 participating in his school band programs. Corey’s natural talent immediately began to flourish. His confidence and maturity were well beyond his years. As a student at Rich South High School in Richton Park, Illinois, his hard work and dedication secured him a spot in the Illinois All State Honors Jazz Combo; the first student in the school’s history to do so.

Corey has also shared the stage with numerous Jazz Masters including but not limited to; Art Ensemble of Chicago, Roscoe Mitchell, David Murray, Hammiet Bluiett, James Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, James Moody, Kurt Elling, Von Freeman, Greg Osby, Marcus Belgrave, Clark Terry, Harry “Sweets” Edison and Mulgrew Miller.

Newsroom Summer Bootcamp

After a successful Spring session, the Sisters in Cinema Newsroom Program will be returning this summer for an all intensive two-week summer Bootcamp!

Officially launched in November of 2020 and covered by Chicago’s own Block Club Chicago and WGN-TV, the Sisters in Cinema Newsroom is a  learn-to-earn program that teaches Black women and gender nonconforming, high school students who live on Chicago’s South Side the basic foundations of journalism with a multimedia twist. Participants are taught how to write and report for social media and learn how to be adaptable communicators who can transition fluidly from one medium to the next.

The program is scheduled to return on Monday, July 19, 2021, and is currently looking for six to ten high school students, ages 15-18, who live on Chicago’s South Side to participate. While the application is open to all, priority will be given to residents of South Shore.

While the fall program/pilot program focused on the basic foundations of journalism and the spring session highlighted writing and reporting for social media, the intensive summer Bootcamp will be a hybrid of the two. By the end of the two weeks, participants will become adaptable communicators who can transition fluidly from one medium to the next. Here are a few of the skills the participants will master:

  1. The basic foundations of journalism

  2. How to write and report for different platforms such as social media, websites, newspapers, magazines, Etc.

  3. How to create a multimedia package

  4. How to overall use social media to enhance their reporting, build their personal brand, and drive traffic to their stories.

The program uses a broad-based approach, including theory and practical experience, and will meet in person at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM for two weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A stipend of $250 will be paid to participants upon successful completion of all six sessions and related course work.

Applications can be found using the following link: https://forms.gle/HdBYwkH6Zu8KTEEm8 and are due on or before 11:59 PM on July 07, 2021. The top ten candidates will be contacted to schedule a Zoom interview by July 08, 2021. Accepted applicants will be notified on or before July 14, 2021, if accepted into the program. We encourage interested applicants to visit www. Sistersincinema.com to learn more about the program or email us info@sistersincinema.com to schedule a virtual Newsroom information session.


Register your scholar for our STEAM Camp! Students will participate in activities using Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math skills.
As part of our Project Ready Middle School Program, this program prepares students for the transition to high school and builds an early foundation for college readiness.

Illinois Green Alliance invites you to our free webinar covering a sustainability upgrade for a historic and iconic home.

The Oscar B. Balch House is a 110-year-old Frank Lloyd Wright designed home in Oak Park, IL. Prioritizing both energy efficiency and historic preservation, Homeowner Samantha Lotti teamed up with architect Tom Bassett-Dilley (Tom Bassett-Dilley Architects), builder Doug Freerksen (Von Dreele-Freerksen Construction Company), and mechanical engineer Mark Nussbaum (Architectural Consulting Engineers) to build a five-year path to net zero for the home.

Incorporating preservation techniques with cutting-edge decarbonization technology, this unique case study has takeaways for any homeowner who wants to map out their plan for a high performance home.

In this webinar, the project team will discuss tradeoffs, long-term planning, energy modeling, and more. Attendees will leave the program with a better understanding of how to begin tackling similar green projects in their own home to decrease their environmental footprint.

In conjunction with Hyde Park Disc Golf and the Jackson Park Advisory Council, we will be putting on a week-long “disc golf exposition” to showcase the sport to the city of Chicago and its residents.
Every night during the week, we will be having an event, all culminating in the South Side Glide, Chicago’s first ever disc golf tournament!
More announcements to come soon, including some very special guests that will be in attendance 👀👀👀
So keep your eyes peeled and mark your calendars, this is something you ARE NOT going to want to miss.
