Music Students Plan Singing Protest Against Winter

SKOKIE, Ill. (CBS) — They say if you don’t like the weather in Chicago, just wait. The kids at a Skokie music school are tired of waiting, and have planned a street protest over the seemingly endless winter.

WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports it will kick off Saturday at the Odeion School of Music at 4100 Oakton St.

“We will create some signs – some sunny signs. We will learn a couple of summer songs, and we will parade around Skokie, and protest against the weather we’ve been having,” said director Eftihia Papageorgiou.

Papageorgiou said her kids are very excited about it.

She has a few songs in mind for the protest.

“For the younger kids, ‘Oh, Mister Sun,’” she said. “I was also thinking of ‘Summertime’ by Gershwin.”

If nothing else, Papageorgiou said it would be therapeutic.
