Ravinia Festival 2016 Schedule Announced

Ravinia gate 2Just a glimpse of summer would be nice.

What’s that you say? The Ravinia Festival 2016 schedule was released!? Splendid.

Ravinia Festival is the oldest outdoor concert venue in the country (over century old), and even though we know it well, it can always surprise us.

Last year we were blessed with performances from Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, Carlos
Santana, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings (saw that one and she blew off the proverbial roof…that Ravinia Paviliondoesn’t exist outside), Seth MacFarlane, Lenny Kravitz, ZZ Top and the list goes on and on and on.

On March 2, Ravinia provided what they promised. When they released the performers, I almost went into the closet to dust off the folding chairs and make a stop at the store to get some wine and cheese. However, shortly after I realized snow was still on the ground.

Some of your top performers on this list include Paul Simon, Diana Ross, Chick Corea, Patti Labelle, Tony Bennett (sans Lady Gaga this year), Bob Dylan and so much more.
