Grant Park Orchestra cellist Eran Meir warms up before a performance

Is there a better way to end a beautiful summer day than with beautiful music in the park? For tonight’s concert, thousands came to Chicago’s Millennium Park to hear an open air concert as part of the Grant Park Music Festival. Carlos Kalmar led the Grant Park Orchestra, opening the program with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Antar, Symphonic Suite, Op. 9. Afterwards, Juho Pohjonen joined the musicians to perform as the soloist in Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2. The program concluded with Rouse’s Thunderstuck.

If you couldn’t make it to Millennium Park for the concert, don’t worry. The pictures below capture the atmosphere on the Great Lawn in Millennium Park before the performance, as well as some of the musicians backstage as they warm up.
