About this Event

Isaiah Spencer - Drums, Christian Dillingham - Bass

Christopher Lucas Wilson is a hard swingin' pianist originally from metropolitan Detroit, transplanted for a decade to Los Angeles, and now living in Chicago. His music is highly influenced by hard swing, bebop, and the rich history of jazz piano trios. His focus is the uplifting nature of swing and the beauty behind the jazz piano trio. His arrangements are thoughtful and his music contagious...

“There are players who skate more, players with more driving rhythms and more ‘original’ versions. For listeners thirsty for ‘ hoisted water/raveling off a bucket,’ for the generous lyricism that left the planet with Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan, Christopher Wilson is a reminder that our musical well is deep and fresh, that a new generation of players can still lead us to it.” ---Michael Lauchlan, author of Trumbull Ave



While RSVP is free, there is a suggested donation in place of a ticket price at the door so that Colvin House can pay our talented, local artists and continue supporting the performing arts. We ask that you contribute $20/person toward paying the musicians and staff for their efforts in producing these community concerts at the Colvin House.

While we prefer cash donations whenever possible, we also accept Zelle, Venmo and PayPal. Thank you!


We do not sell food & drink onsite at Colvin House (yet!).

And unfortunately, our local restaurant partner, Rewired Caferecently suffered a fire.

As such, for now, these events are Bring-Your-Own-Food-&-Beverages only.

We encourage all guests to grab takeout from other nearby restaurants or pack a picnic! Guests are welcome to bring whatever they like, including alcohol, and enjoy at their table.
