CAA @ Grant Park Music Festival Concert

  • 01 Aug 2012
  • 6:30 PM
  • Great Lawn, Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park
The CAA Events Subcommittee invites you to join us for a free concert in Millennium Park as part of the Grant Park Music Festival. CAA members were invited to complete a survey to choose which concert CAA should attend and by overwhelming demand chose Scheherazade.


This pair of adventurous musical voyages will entice audiences of all ages. Rimsky-Korsakov’s lush music, inspired by stories from The Arabian Nights, is paired with a 1914 work from Chicago composer John Alden Carpenter that follows the rollicking travels through the city of a baby in a buggy.

Friends, family, and significant others are all welcome. Pets, unfortunately, are not permitted on the Great Lawn.

Andy Steadham will be out on the Great Lawn by 5pm, as close to the Pavilion as possible. He’ll be holding up a document box with “CAA” plastered on the side from time to time to help you find us among the crowd. Any outside food and drink, including alcohol, is welcome in the Pavilion during concerts. Blankets and an umbrella (just in case) are a good idea, too.

The Grant Park Music Festival website has a wealth of information on the concert season, the music, and the performers. Check out the Plan Your Visit page for details about the Jay Prizker Pavilion, including park rules, directions, and a map of Millennium Park.

If you have questions, please contact Events Subcommittee member Andy Steadham at andrewsteadham@gmail.com.
