Ravinia Festival Association Overview
Programs: Musical and cultural productions in the following venues: The Pavilion -- Ravinia's 3,200-seat open-air, covered Pavilion is the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, jazz luminaries and legends, and some of the greatest pop, folk, blues and country musicians of today. The Martin Theatre -- Just inside the West Gate and steps from the train, the historic Martin Theatre is the only original building at Ravinia that still remains, since the park opened in 1904. Beautifully restored in 1996, the 850-seat recital hall is home to stunning chamber music and recital programs, jazz events during Jazz in June and also Martinis at the Martin, Ravinia's cabaret series featuring great vocalists performing hits from the Great American Songbook. Bennett*Gordon Hall -- Located at the southern-most section of the park, Bennett*Gordon Hall, in the John D. Harza building, is a 450-seat, jewel-like recital hall, home to the Steans Institute for Young Artists. The Lawn -- Ravinia's expansive lawn offers an informal and comfortable place to picnic while enjoying Pavilion and Martin Theatre concerts, broadcast to the lawn audience through our state-of-the-art sound system. The Steans Institute for Young Artists is the Ravinia Festival's professional studies program for young musicians. Five programs comprise the Institute's summer season: the program for jazz; the classical programs for piano and strings, for vocal chamber music and for singers; and the Sandra K. Crown Program for American Classic Music Theater. In each of the programs, young artists study with an internationally renowned faculty of artist/teachers, participate in concerts given as part of Ravinia's summer programming and attend Ravinia concerts.
