Ravinia Festival

Each year, the Ravinia Festival, a picturesque amphitheater, and favorite summer music venue for many Chicagoans, attracts about 600,000 listeners to some 120 to 150 events that span all genres from classical music to jazz to musical theater every June through September. As a nonprofit organization, Ravinia has identified community outreach and education initiatives as a key mission. Over 75,000 people are served through Ravinia’s Reach-Teach-Play programs including Ravinia Lawndale Family Music School and Sistema Ravinia, each year, ensuring that great music remains accessible to all communities throughout Chicago.
