Musicians from Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute, who will perform at Ravinia as part of the Rising Stars series on April 7, 2012, is a chamber ensemble whose members are selected each year from the most promising musicians to attend the institute’s summer session at Ravinia. They perform on tour with Program Director Miriam Fried. The repertoire for each tour varies, but always includes three or four works for piano and strings. The tour, designed to bring the musical richness of Ravinia to a wider audience, presents formal concerts as well as educational outreach programs for schools and community organizations. Musicians from Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute have appeared at such prestigious venues as Boston’s Gardner Museum, the Library of Congress, Miami’s Friends of Chamber Music series and New York’s Town Hall, in addition to performances each year on Ravinia Festival’s Rising Stars series.
