Ravinia Festival with Lang Lang and CSO [free!]


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).

This year, Lang Lang will play with Chicago Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, July 27, 7:00pm. CSSA will offer free transportation for the concert and the Lawn Ticket is free for Northwestern Student (with WildCard). We will rent a school bus which will set out from the Chicago campus and stop by the Evanston campus. Please fill out the application form if you plan to attend this event. (CSSA will only rent one school bus, so only about 50 seats are available. First come first served.)

We will travel to Ravinia Park to enjoy the Ravinia Festival, a famous outdoor music festival that began in 1904. We’ll sit outside on the lawn and enjoy a live performance by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. You are encouraged to bring picnic blanket and your own food to the Festival and enjoy a picnic dinner. Food will also be available for purchase at the park. Learn more about the Ravinia Festival at this website: Students can get a free lawn ticket for entrance to the Festival by showing your Northwestern WildCard ID.

Date : July 27 (Saturday)
