The Grant Park Music Festival is the nation’s only remaining free, outdoor classical music series. Each summer, the Festival is committed to providing free classical music to all of Chicago in its new venue: the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
Since 2001, the Festival has been presented through a unique collaboration of the Chicago Park District, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Grant Park Orchestral Association. The Grant Park Orchestral Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the Festival’s programs and priorities. The Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus reach more than one million people annually through free classical music performances, and the Festival’s extensive community engagement program brings music education to young people from across the city each summer.
