Why Chicago? Chicago draws me into its symphonic concerto of sounds: buses chug along, bicycles whiz by, a jazz trumpeter playing on the corner as an ambulance wails by, and underneath it all the rattle of the "L" trains. Chicago’s streets are filled with music, laughter, and quietness of the occasional winter snow. And when you really listen, you can hear the birds tweeting and the rustle of leaves. Our city is a vibration of sound that sings.
