In 1967, a group of young musicians from Chicago-area universities formed a band called the Chicago Transit Authority, named for the city’s mass transit operator. The seven-member group quickly found fame as “the rock and roll band with horns,” though when the city’s real transit authority threatened legal action, they shortened the name to Chicago. Although the Grammy Award-winning band’s lineup has changed since its heyday in the 1970s, Chicago’s sound remains familiar, featuring experimental rock and soft rock ballads that everyone can enjoy. On Monday, bring a picnic and blanket to Wolf Trap, where Chicago will undoubtedly perform many of their 21 Top 10 Billboard hit singles, including “If You Leave Me Now,” “Look Away,” “You’re the Inspiration,” “What Kind of Man Would I Be” and more. Monday at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap, 1551 Trap Road, Vienna, Va. 877/WOLFTRAP. Web: wolftrap.org.
