To Support Our Education Programs

Originating in 1965 as a Ravinia Women’s Board program to make concert tickets available to young music lovers, Reach Teach Play opens doors year-round for over 75,000 people across the Chicago area to access and experience the positive impact of music. A dozen distinct programs provide underserved children and families with music education programs and live music performances in their schools and communities, as well as at Ravinia. Your support helps us sustain these experiences that inspire and uplift the spirit through the arts.
