Visit The Jazzin’ at the Shedd

On June 21, the Shedd Aquarium is hosting its first Jazzin’ at the Shedd event of the year.

It features amazing sea creatures, refreshing drinks, and some of the area’s top jazz musicians.

Highlights include:

Jazzin’ Science Pub – Held in the Phelps Auditorium, the pub is where one of the aquarium’s researchers shares interesting details about his job. It’s a great way to learn about an array of animals, and he’ll take questions from the audience.
