Lunch during quarantine can be quite monotonous. Perhaps you make a sandwich, reheat last night's leftovers or take a quick walk around the block.
Break free of the routine on Thursday, May 28, and join flutist, DePaul School of Music alumnus and 2018 TEDxDePaulUniversity speaker James Brinkmann for an interactive concert. At 12:30 p.m., Brinkmann will perform three solo pieces, and participants will be led through a creative exercise to depict their experience with his music through words or drawings.
Register today to participate in this unique event, and unwind and interact with music from your own home. Don't worry about being artistic either, all skill levels welcome!

About James Brinkmann
Brinkmann's mission is to find innovative ways to connect audiences with his music and creativity. You may have already heard him perform because Brinkmann used to play on Chicago's subway platforms.
After graduating from DePaul in 2011, his efforts were covered in the Chicago Tribune and in 2018, he took the TEDxDePaulUniversity stage to present “Collaborative Listening." Currently, Brinkmann is a Michigan State University doctoral student, developing interactive programs and researching the benefits of being creative while listening to music.
