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 community as an Impresario Society donor. While your gift is hard at work bringing the Festival’s free music experiences to all Chicagoans and visitors, you will receive invitations to signature Impresario Society events, including: 

  • Impresario Society Terrace – Drop by our reception tent before every Festival concert at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion for light refreshments, wine, and mingling with other donors.
  • Impresario Society Soirées – Connect with your Festival friends during our off-season event series featuring intimate recitals and Q&A with musicians of the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus.
  • Impresario Society Post-Concert Receptions – Join us after concerts for opportunities to celebrate together and meet the Festival’s leadership and 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.
