Chicago provides many excellent events in the summer. Ravinia Festival is one of them. What is Ravinia Festival? "Ravinia Festival is the oldest outdoor music festival in the United States, with a series of outdoor concerts and performances held every summer from June to September. Patrons can see the shows in a traditional concert setting in an open-air theater with state-of-the-art sound, video and lighting equipment or choose to sit in the lawn area and listen to the music while picnicking." (sited from wiki). In Ravinia Festival, Yo-Yo Ma will play Tchaikovsky on Aug 5, 8:00pm. CSSA can't provide the admission for everyone (you have to buy the tickets by yourselves, but if you want to take the lawn admission, please see the follow-up message), but we do offer free transportation. We will rent a school bus which will sent out from the Chicago campus and stop by the Evanston campus.
