Hear Opening Night at the Grant Park Music Festival, Wednesday at 6:30 PM
It’s time to grab your lawn chairs and picnic baskets—or not; the seats are ample, and so are the food vendors—the Grant Park Orchestra opens tonight with principal conductor Carlos Kalmar on the podium for Tchaikovsky’s 4th Symphony. Kalmar has distinguished himself as a brilliant programmer, and exciting conductor for these free concerts, which happen in one of the most spectalur settings for any concert, anywhere in the world.
Yes, the weather is forbidding, but you can still hear the concert on WFMT, broadcast live starting at 6:30. Click here for more details.
Update: The June 12 concert was cancelled due to inclimate weather.
