Disney Encanto In Concert
First Chicago Showing with Live Orchestra!
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Oscar-winning film Encanto comes to life in concert, featuring Chicago Philharmonic performing the original score by Germaine Franco, who earned Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for the music.
Encanto tells the tale of the Madrigals, an extraordinary family living in a magical house in the mountains of Colombia. But when Mirabel, the only ordinary Madrigal, discovers the magic surrounding their home is in danger, she may be her family’s last hope.
What is Ravinia?
For those of you new to Chicago or those of you who have heard of Ravinia but have never been, Ravinia is a 36-acre park in the north shore suburb of Highland Park. Ravinia is nestled in a gently wooded area that provides an enchanting place to experience music.
Ravinia, North America's oldest music festival, stands today as its most musically diverse, presenting over 140 different events throughout the summer. These concerts run the gamut from Yo-Yo Ma to John Legend to the annual summer residency of the nation's finest orchestra, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Information about Ravinia can be found at www.Ravinia.org. For more details, refer to the Ravinia website.
