Movitas celebrates egalitarianism: as a collective where everyone actively contributes to the group; and by developing and maintaining power-sharing amongst the entire collective.
The Movitas band strives to be a welcoming, accessible musical community and a safer space for people of all ages, genders, racial identities, class backgrounds, and abilities. We don’t tolerate racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, ageist, classist, ablist, or other oppressive behaviors.
We strive to have healthy relationships and hold ourselves accountable to each other and the wider community. The Movitas Band exists to: have fun, reclaim public space and the streets for music, provide musical support for political actions, and be a creative outlet for members, actively nurturing members’ creativity!
To accomplish this goal, Garfield commits itself to involving school personnel, community members, students, and their families as partners in an ongoing process of eduational improvement. We construct an environment of excellence and ethical growth for all. Students, faculty and staff continuously work to learn and grow.
As part of that, they have an amazingly talented drumline that might well melt your face.
Chicago performance art group Environmental Encroachment (EE) uses circus theatrics and an artist marching band to create unique entertainment environments. Performances can include costumes, live music, parades, acrobatics, fire spinning, spontaneous appearances and audience interaction.
EE Marching Band’s music uses North African, Latin, and traditional American rhythms, fused with electric bass and a brass section. Melodies are folkloric fusions, and creations inspired from New Orleans, Jazz and Rock.
EE encourages participation, dance, and freeing the spirit.

UNCONVENTIONAL CONVENT: Here’s something we didn’t know: The convent of Las Huelgas in Northern Spain housed the rebel women of nobility who sang polyphony in a time when women were forbidden to do so. Now, Anonymous 4, a medieval a capella ensemble, performs an evening of some of those taboo pieces, augmented by early-music instrumentalists Shira Kammen on vielle, and Peter Maund on percussion. As Presented by the Early Music Guild, it feels nothing but prescient.
Saturday 8:00 p.m. // Town Hall // $40/$35 senior/$25 side sections/$15 under 25
