Whether you love classical, pop, rock or just enjoy listening to music while picnicking, Ravinia Festival in suburban Highland Park ends the summer on a high note.
The Ravinia Festival’s lawn was blanket to blanket July 16. You would have thought the Highland Park music venue was featuring a pop star. But it was the Beethoven’s popular Fifth Symphony played by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra that arguably attracted the crowds. Given the well-deserved applause, the audience in the Pavilion and out on the lawn were not disappointed.
