On November 24, 2013 International House announced the establishment of the Weil Parker Fund for Performing Arts at International House. This fund honors alumni Claude Weil and Irma Parker AB’49 who established the fund to be used by International House to provide support for performing arts programs, with a special emphasis on classical music programs. The November 24th celebration included a brunch reception followed by a chamber music concert by the Chicago Ensemble. Current residents, fellow alumni and community members attended the special celebration. Annual classical music programs will receive support from this new fund.
A Chicago Ensemble concert was the first event to receive support from the Weil Parker Fund for Performing Arts. Read more about this concert and the Weil Parker Fund for Performing Arts.
