Since the concert was at Rivinia, I would make sure what kind of tickets are being purchased. I made the mistake of assuming the tickets were for the lawn and instead it was for inside the Pavilion.

What a great show. The clarinetists were outstanding. Could have done with just one vocalist, instead of two. But over all, it was am excellent tribune.

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!
