As we transition into Fall here in the midwest I’m thankful for a summer that was filled with live music. Concerts were one of the things that were sorely missed during the pandemic. We certainly tried to make up for missed time with multiple trips to Ravinia. If you’ve never been to Ravinia I’d rank it up there with other notable outdoor music venues. I’ve never actually bothered to buy tickets for actual seats. Sitting on expansive lawn with thousands of other people is an experience. I’ve seen people bring out full folding tables with expansive food spreads, candles, and wine. While it’s an environment ripe for ridicule of the priviledge of the north shore, it’s a great place to enjoy an evening and listen to music.
