Concert Information

Sometimes we’re treated to classical music without even knowing it. Works by Rachmaninoff, Barber, Holst and other classical giants have been used in Hollywood scores for an array of films, from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Platoon to Somewhere in Time. These soundtrack giants are collected in one evening that features the Ravinia debut of guitar superstar Miloš Karadaglić along with conductor Robert Moody, pianist Orion Weiss and Chicago Children’s Choir.
