Billy Corgan, of the legendary rock group The Smashing Pumpkins (known for anthems like "Today," "Tonight, Tonight," "1979" and "Bullet With Butterfly Wings"), is making his Ravinia debut and you have a chance to experience it while helping out students -- this exclusive offer benefits Ravinia Festival's REACH*TEACH*PLAY education programs. Corgan, in addition to continuing to write and perform as The Smashing Pumpkins, has also been a member of Zwan and produced solo recordings. An iconic figure in modern rock, Corgan maintains much of the musical verve that catapulted him to stardom. Joining him on the bill is Australian singer-songwriter, Katie Cole. Fresh off the release of her debut full-length album, Lay It All Down, Cole describes her music as "Americana meets British pop," with a sound that recalls Colbie Caillat, Sheryl Crow and Fleetwood Mac.

Brahms – Piano Concerto No. 1
The Chicago Tribune praised legendary pianist Yefim Bronfman after his recent appearance with the CSO for his “leonine power, thunderous brio and glinting virtuosity.” Hear for yourself as he channels these talents into Brahms’ First Piano Concerto, led by Michael Tilson Thomas.
About the Ticket Supplier: Chicago Symphony OrchestraThe CSO is a musical force in Chicago and around the world with more than 150 performances and events a year, 107 talented musicians, two internationally renowned conductors, and two award-winning composers-in-residence.
The central mission of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association is to present classical music through the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to Chicago, national and international audiences.
The mission is supported by four mutually reinforcing elements: artistic excellence (continued international preeminence in the field of orchestral excellence), audience development (leading audience development initiatives), education (superior education and community programs) and financial stability (fiscal responsibility for long-term stability).
In November 2008, the CSO was ranked the best U.S. orchestra by Gramophone magazine.
