A Note To Chicago

These past few weeks have been a powerful reminder of just how connected we are . . . 

Dear Friends,

Like all of you, I have been intently following the rapidly evolving developments around the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) and considering the many ways its future course might continue to alter the lives of those closest to me and all over the world. These past few weeks have been a powerful reminder of just how connected we are to one another—and how much we value our connections. With dizzying speed, the global pandemic has forced us to change our routines and find creative ways of touching one another.

We've always believed in the power of music as a way of reaching others. On behalf of the board and staff of the Grant Park Music Festival, thank you for being an important part of our family. As of today, we plan to see you when we all come together on June 10 for opening night of the Grant Park Music Festival.  

Paul Winberg
President & CEO
