Ravinia is sorry to confirm that the National Youth Orchestra of Venezuela has canceled its four-city tour, including its September 14 Ravinia debut. While Ravinia regrets that we cannot present this extraordinary young orchestra at this time, we are committed to bringing them back in the future to share their enthusiasm and prowess, as well as interact with our own young musicians. We wish our friends in Venezuela courage and hope in this challenging time.  
Ticketholders to the September 14 concert need do nothing as refunds will be processed automatically to the original source of payment.
Ravinia’s REACH*TEACH*PLAY education programs, which employ the same El Sistema music education model that has propelled the National Youth Orchestra of Venezuela, will still hold the three-week music camp for its participants that had been scheduled to coincide with this concert.
