About us

Now in its 79th year, the Grant Park Music Festival is the nation's only remaining free outdoor summer classical music series. Featuring the Grammy-nominated Grant Park Orchestra under the baton of Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Carlos Kalmar and the award-winning Grant Park Chorus, led by Director Christopher Bell, the Festival annually offers a 10-week season of concerts, artistic development initiatives, radio broadcasts, and community education and outreach programs, sharing the enrichment of symphonic music with nearly 1.8 million people each year.

From its home in the exquisite Jay Pritkzer Pavilion in Millennium Park, the Festival has earned a reputation for artistic excellence by consistently presenting varied and adventurous repertoire—juxtaposing well-loved favorites with less familiar classical and contemporary masterworks—at the highest professional level.

In 2013, Grant Park Music Festival audiences will experience some of the most beloved music of all time, including Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 on Opening Night, Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2, Dvořák's New World Symphony, and Prokofiev's Alexander Nevsky. They will also be treated to some of the masterworks of today—from the Chicago premiere of Qigang Chen's Iris dévoilée, to Roberto Sierra's Concerto for Saxophones with jazz great James Carter, to John Adams' rarely performed landmark work Harmonium, featuring the Festival's Grant Park Chorus.
