A Tribute to the Music of Chicago

The second event in our PV Live!! Series, Beginnings was born out of the love and respect for the music of one of the greatest American Rock bands of all time—Chicago, whose song book spans more than forty years, and includes five No. 1 albums and twenty top ten hits. Beginnings has brought their honest and entertaining tribute to this timeless music to venues across the country, and now to the Norris Theatre. Come and enjoy rocking out to the tunes of Chicago!
