Free Ravinia Lawn Tickets to Classical Music Concerts

Summer is on its way, believe it or not, which means that the Ravinia concert season is almost here! As in the past, Ravinia has generously supplied local libraries with a limited number of tickets for library patrons. These are lawn tickets to classical music concerts (so no Jennifer Hudson or Robert Plant 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 11th from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on the 1st floor. 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 Readers' Services desk on the 3rd floor to view a list of available concerts and pick up a Ravinia concert schedule. This year, Ravinia also generously supplied us with copies of Ravinia Preview magazine, which includes interviews with performers, as well as a full calendar of events.

The third floor is also where you'll find classical music CDs--and all other music CDs--to check out.

Finally, you can enjoy live classical music right here in Des Plaines this summer. On Sunday, July 17th, pianist Mark Damisch will be performing compositions by Copland, Barber, Dello Joio and Gershwin right here at the library, in Friends Room B/C at 2 p.m. Click here to register.

Happy listening and concert-going!
