FESTIVALS

Ravinia
Every summer, Ravinia attracts about 600,000 listeners to some 120 to 150 events that span all genres from classical music to jazz to musical theater every June through September. As a nonprofit organization, community outreach and music education initiatives are our key mission. Over 75,000 people are served through Ravinia's Reach*Teach*Play programs each year, ensuring that great music remains accessible to all.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Ravinia's 2014 season, dubbed "Summer of Love/Season of Stars," is brimming with talent and romance. The 2014 schedule brings some of the biggest names in the world of music as well as repertoire that explores the theme of great love in its various manifestations. No fewer than three musical incarnations of the most famous love story of all time, Romeo and Juliet, will be featured, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's Overture-Fantasy, a suite from Prokofiev's ballet setting of the story and performing the score live as the classic film West Side Story is shown. In other examples of love, soprano Deborah Voigt describes it as "Something Wonderful" on a Broadway evening, the legendary Broadway team of Lerner and Loewe will be celebrated, and Chanticleer even jabs at the battle of the sexes in an evening titled "She Said/He Said." In fact, love lurks, longs, and lingers across genres in most of the more than 130 events that Ravinia will present in 2014, its 110th year and its 78th as the summer residence of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
