Free Ravinia Lawn Tickets! Starry Nights of Classical Music!

Yes, it's that time again! As in the past, Ravinia has generously supplied local libraries with a limited number of tickets for our patrons. These are lawn tickets to classical music concerts (so no Sheryl Crow or Sting tickets), and a great opportunity to listen to first-rate classical performers in a beautiful setting.

Tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis on Saturday, June 19th from 9 am to 11 am by the entrance to Community Room A on the 1st floor. (The ticket line forms at the front door.) Any tickets available after that will be distributed at the 3rd floor Readers' Services desk. The ticket limit is 2 tickets per person.

Want to know what concerts we have tickets we for? Stop by the 3rd floor desk to view a list of available concerts and pick up a Ravinia concert schedule.

The third floor is also where you'll find classical music CDs--and all other music CDs--to check out. Some of our most recent acquisitions include the following:

Prokofiev: Piano Concertos 2 & 3 performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy and featuring one of my favorite pianists, Evgeny Kissin.

Beethoven: Complete Works for Piano and Cello performed by Simone Dinnerstein and Zuill Bailey (currently on the Billboard Classical Bestseller list).

Mendelssohn: Piano Trios performed by music legends Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman and Emanuel Ax.

Happy listening and concert-going!
