Victor Garcia trumpets the U. of C.’s sharp new Logan Center hall

September 18, 2012

The University of Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts doesn’t officially launch until next month, but jazz listeners got to check out its sleek new Performance Hall over the weekend.

A decidedly dressed-up crowd turned out Friday night for the Hyde Park Jazz Festival Gala, a dinner-and-concert fundraiser for the fest, which will play at the Logan Center on Sept. 29 and other neighborhood venues Sept. 29 and 30. In effect, the jazz devotees were among the first to see and hear the emergence of a major auditorium.
