Ravinia’s Full 2011 Schedule

The festivities at Ravinia begin in just a couple days with the Chicago Children’s Choir.  The bigger names that are gracing the stage this year are Robert Plant, Moody Blues, Rufus Wainright, Carrie Underwood, Maroon 5, and Los Lobos to name a few.

Ravinia isn’t just for pop acts that we are so familiar with such as Maroon 5, Carrie Underwood, and Jennifer Hudson, Ravinia provides an extensive schedule for kids and family entertainment at an affordable cost, if not free.

For ticket information, visit Ravinia.org or call (847) 266-5100. The complete season lineup follows. Note that artists and programs are subject to change. Repertoire being performed at Ravinia for the first time is marked with an asterisk (*). Artists making their Ravinia debut are marked with a plus sign (+).  Lawn ticket prices are increased by $5 on the day of the show when marked by a double asterisk (**). Popular Acts are in BLUE.
