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. The REACH*TEACH*PLAY education programs serve 75,000 Chicagoans annually and include the creation of student orchestras in budget-strapped schools. Learn More

It was an exquisite performance, and the musicians were top-notch; I would see them again in a heartbeat. The Mahler and Mozart pieces they performed sounded wonderful, but the two contemporary compositions were discordant and, while the musicians themselves were excellent, the continuously clashing notes contained in the pieces were an assault to my ears ansd psyche. If these pieces hadn't been included, I would have rated this event at five stars, easily. Fortunately the concert wrapped up with a calm, harmonious Mozart piece, and we left feeling soothed and, quite literally, on a positive note.
