Individual donors who support the Festival’s mission of providing free classical music to the city of Chicago have access to the following benefits:

Sustainer $500
  • Invitation to a Patron Appreciation Breakfast and Rehearsal
  • Concert program recognition
Benefactor $1,000
  • All of the above, plus
  • Invitation to a special Season Preview event featuring an Artistic conversation

The Impresario Society  members are invited to experience the creative process first hand and mingle with Carlos Kalmar, Christopher Bell, guest artists, and Grant Park musicians throughout the season. Exclusive opportunities and benefits are available at different giving levels.

While there are so many great organizations in Chicago, Grant Park Music Festival Board Member LaRue Robinson wants you to know he supports the Festival because “it’s an amazing cultural organization in Chicago. We have incredible musicians. A great conductor. We put on amazing concerts. And best of all, Grant Park Music Festival is completely accessible and free.”
