“Music in the Air”
is a year-round program, organized in conjunction with Chicago’s downtown festivals and holiday celebrations.
The popular program is original to Chicago and has led to similar live music programs at other airports around the country.
In 1998, the Department of Aviation, along with key individuals in the Chicago music scene, enlisted help from local labels, music organizations, clubs, bands and individual musicians to bring local artists’ recordings to O’Hare International Airport.
