Bennett Gordon Hall

Located at the southernmost section of the park, Bennett Gordon Hall, in the John D. Harza Building, is a 450-seat, jewel-like recital hall. First opening its doors in 1988, BGH is Ravinia’s year-round venue, with the BGH Classics series mirroring the festival’s diverse programming at an ultra-affordable price. Note: The Bennett Gordon Hall is an indoor venue. The performances are not broadcast to the lawn.
