Music Matters 2020 Live Event Canceled

We regret to share with you that the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has forced the Ravinia Associates Board to cancel Music Matters 2020. Originally planned for May 9, the event was postponed to October 10 as public health concerns first became evident, but it has become clear that holding the event this year will not be feasible.

We are grateful for your support, which means more than ever at this time. Music Matters is the Ravinia Associates’ biggest event of the year, raising crucial funds for our music education initiatives. These programs are supporting the families hardest hit by this pandemic, keeping children engaged while homebound and, more important, providing whole families and communities hope and joy through music. These programs would not exist without you. To help us ensure their vitality, please make a contribution here.

To date the Associates have raised over $5 million for the festival and its education and community engagement programs. Learn more.
