Tickets are available for concerts on Friday starting at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday starting at 7:30 p.m.  You can also attend the open rehearsals during the day.  Complete details are available on the website.

Held at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, this season has featured an ambitious schedule of programming that has included something for everyone! Grab your blanket and some snacks and enjoy a classical concert under the stars!
