CenterStage (on hiatus in 2021*) brings artist and audience together onstage at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion for free, intimate Sunday afternoon concerts.
Inaugurated during the 2019 Festival past CenterStage performers include: violinist Augustin Hadelich, composer and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Kahane, and members of the Grant Park Orchestra. During the 2020 Virtual Season, the Grant Park Music Festival presented a video performance of Chicago's own violin virtuoso Rachel Barton Pine performing with Grammy Award-winning jazz artist and composer Billy Childs; and a video performance featuring Grant Park Orchestra cellist Eric Kutz playing music by Bach. See both video performances.
Note: *Due to the ongoing pandemic, this program has been suspended for the 2021 Season. Look for its return in a future season.
