    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    Music is a powerful medium. It’s shaped modern culture, behavior and ethos in ways that go far beyond the spectacles of Woodstock or Lollapalooza. More often than not, musical moments that truly shape history take place far from the public eye. They happen in recording booths; on a stage in a DIY venue; inside a subway car. In this signature Chicago Ideas Talk, we’ll dig into how that kind of melodic magic manifests, and how the ever-changing streaming wars are poised to change the game entirely.
