Impresario Society

Our devoted Impresario Society donors contribute annual leadership gifts that help elevate the Festival’s performances and education programs to the highest level of artistic excellence and community impact.

By contributing a minimum of $2,500 annually, you secure a special place in the Festival’s family as a cherished Impresario Society donor. While your gift is hard at work bringing the Festival’s free music experiences to all Chicagoans, you will enjoy exclusive recognition in our concert program books and invitations to exciting events, including: 

  • Impresario Society Terrace – While receptions will look different this year, we plan to provide pre-concert refreshments in whatever way is possible within safety protocols. Stay tuned!
  • Impresario Society Soirées – As soon as pandemic safety guidelines allow for it, join us on the stage of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion during the Festival’s off-season for a recital series featuring soloists from the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus.
  • Opportunities to attend other special summer events, such as post-concert receptions with Carlos Kalmar, Christopher Bell, and distinguished guest artists. 

Please consider a more generous gift to join our circle of donors who have a transformational impact on the Festival and engage most closely with our leadership and artistic talent. We offer a range of giving options, such as underwriting a member of the orchestra or chorus, sponsoring a concert or guest artist, or directing your support to a specific community or education program.

For more information about our Impresario Society, donor benefits, giving options and levels, please contact Jen Nahn, Associate Director of Development at or 312.744.2162.
