Donor Ticketing

rtp kids playing instruments

Though we are known as a summer performance venue, Ravinia is a year-round organization with a nonprofit mission that extends beyond the stage. Our Reach Teach Play education programs serve over 85,000 community members each year, ensuring music education remains an accessible, stimulating experience for all. Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute offers private coaching, master classes, and collaborative performance opportunities to the next generation of professional musicians as they go on to highly visible and successful performing careers. And our beautiful park is a destination for family, friends, and colleagues to bond over shared experience, culminating in encounters with music of many backgrounds and today’s most celebrated artists at affordable prices in a casual setting.

Ravinia donors receive a variety of benefits aimed at making the Ravinia experience as simple and fulfilling as possible, including advance ticketing.
