Latin Music Legends Bebel Gilberto & Chucho Valdés at Ravinia
Two legends of Latin Music -- Bossa Nova superstar Bebel Gilberto and Latin Jazz icon Chucho Valdés -- join forces at Ravinia. Singer Gilberto, the daughter of bossa nova legend Joao Gilberto and singer Miucha, has carved an artistic career of her own. She made her recording debut at the age of 11 alongside her mother, and soon worked with musicians including Antonio Carlos Jobim and Stan Getz. Launching a solo career in 1986, she's blended acoustic bossa nova sounds with electronic music and earned two Latin Grammy nominations. Legendary pianist Chucho Valdés, whose singular style is influenced by Afro-Cuban, flamenco and straight-up jazz, is a recognized master who's won multiple Grammy Awards, recorded more than 80 albums, and has graced the stages of Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl, among other vaunted venues.

About the Ticket Supplier: Ravinia FestivalThere's more to Ravinia than merely the world's greatest music. For as many people who walk through Ravinia's gate each summer, there are just as many ways to enjoy what they call "The Ravinia Experience."
For some, it all starts with a picnic picked up along the way, followed by a hop on the train and greeting your friends at your favorite spot on the lawn. Gradually, day turns into evening, and from the comfort of your perfect lawn spot, it culminates in a great concert by candlelight as you gaze at the stars above.
For others, it's a dinner reservation at one of Ravinia's popular on-site restaurants followed by a casual stroll to the Pavilion, where you go to see and hear the stars on the stage.
Bring your own lavish picnic, treat yourself to an ice cream cone at intermission, or just come as you are and leave the details to them.
Since 1904, Ravinia has been Chicago's "sound of summer," a place where you can meet up with your friends, have a wonderful time and hear some of the greatest music in the world. They've got stars on the stage and stars in the sky, and it's all within your reach. Enjoy!
