Altgeld Chimes Centenary Celebration to Feature Special Concert
The Altgeld Chimes mark 100 years with a special performance on October 30 at 3:00 PM. Joined by the Marching Illini, this concert will be performed live at Altgeld Hall, and will be livestreamed for those not able to attend in person.

The concert will be followed by a webinar exploring the history and impact of Altgeld Hall, and plans for its future.
