The audience gets ready to enjoy the opening night concert of the Grant Park Music Festival

In Chicago, it’s not summer until the Grant Park Musical Festival gives its opening night concert. The Festival is the nation’s only free, outdoor classical music series, and WFMT is proud to broadcast Festival concerts live from Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. The opening night concert featured Barber’s Essay No. 2, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, and Poulenc’s Two-Piano Concerto, featuring Fabio Bidini and Andrew von Oeyen as soloists.

No Grant Park concert would be complete without one thing, however: picnics! Below, enjoy photos of audience members and their picnic spreads. You might find some ideas for how you can enjoy festival concerts at Millennium Park, or from anywhere in the world through WFMT’s broadcasts. Learn more about upcoming Grant Park Music Festival concerts here.
