The weather was chilly. I wore a skirt and flats with a half sleeve cotton shirt. Should have worn jeans and a long sleeve shirt! Many people dressed up in Burton-esque attire. .

The concert was not what I expected. I took 3 teens and they found it boring.

First I must say these were the best seats that I have received from Goldstar. Even thou they were on the left side of the venue they were still close to the center about 6 rows from the stage. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra was awesome as usual...continued

It was not what I expected. It was not so much made for films scores as it was music used in films that was already out and the movie makes like them so much that they put them into there movies.

About the Ticket Supplier: Ravinia Festival

There’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!
