CenterStage brings artist and audience together onstage at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion for free, intimate, Sunday-afternoon concerts.

Inaugurated during the 2019 Festival, CenterStage has presented a range of artists, including violinist Augustin Hadelich, composer and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Kahane, the ZOFO piano duo, flutist Marina Piccinini with pianist Andreas Haefliger as well as members of the Grant Park Orchestra. The 2022 series included a world premiere string quartet by multi-Grammy-winning jazz artist Billy Childs performed by the string fellows from the Festival's young artist program.
