Jazz Institute of Chicago

Harris Theatre


The non-profit Harris Theater partners with an array of Chicago’s
performing arts and cultural institutions by providing subsidized
rental, technical expertise, and marketing support. The Harris Theater
allows these remarkable organizations to focus on what they do
best—bringing the finest music and dance to the public.

The Theater’s mission allows the performing arts organizations using
the Theater to attract broader, larger, and more diverse audiences,
encourage artistic synergy between groups, and increase opportunities
to offer educational programs. The Theater serves as a national model
of collaboration between the philanthropic community and performing
arts organizations.

The Theater underwrites 40% of the daily usage costs for its
non-profit user groups while providing marketing, box office,
front-of-house, and technical services at no extra charge. Through
these efforts, the Theater is integral to allowing its users to develop
a loyal core audience, expand its audience base, build a stronger
identity, cultivate contributions from the private sector, and build
ticket revenue.
