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

About the Ticket Supplier: Chicago Gay Men's ChorusThe Chicago Gay Men's Chorus (CGMC) has been an integral part of Chicago's cultural and gay communities since 1983. For the last two decades, they have entertained audiences across the continent with innovative musical programming exploring everything from love to politics to the sometimes fabulous, sometimes challenging world of being gay--often all at the same time. Their always-memorable performances have included original musical revues; four popular productions celebrating the Sidetrack show tune experience; full-length book musicals like The Wizard of Oz, The Mikado and H.M.S. Pinafore; and traditional choral concerts--all punctuated with their signature joyous irreverence.
Notable milestones in their recent history include their induction into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame, multiple performances of the National Anthem at Chicago Cubs baseball games, and the production of two CDs: Cool Yule, which debuted in November 2001, and I Will Be Loved Tonight, a collection of their favorite love (and not-so-in-love) songs that was released in December 2004.
