The Jets and Sharks are coming to Ravinia! Enjoy a night under the stars for “West Side Story” and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on Friday, July 12!
The Oscar-winning film “West Side Story” will play in its entirety on screens on the lawn and in the pavilion. Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Newman, will perform the score live.
Get there early to join our very own entertainment critic Dean Richards who will lead a pre-concert discussion in front of the big screen.
Gates open to the public at 5pm and the concert starts at 8pm.
And stop by to see WGN-TV and WGN Radio at Ravinia that evening, too!
Ravinia®, North America’s oldest music festival, stands today as its most musically diverse, presenting over 140 different events throughout the summer. Dine at Ravinia’s restaurants inside the Dining Pavilion. Or, create your entire meal or supplement the picnic you packed at Ravinia’s expanded market, which features grab-and-go food and drinks and hot-food stations.
