Each year the Hyde Park Jazz Festival collects stories about jazz on the Midway, with the aim of building an archive of personal recollections and experiences with the music and its community across generations.
Sample questions include:
What is the role of jazz in your life?
What role does jazz play in Chicago?
How does jazz make you feel?
In 2015, thanks to a grant from the Joyce Foundation, Story Share was fortunate to partner with StoryCorps Chicago.
