According to John von Rhein's recent piece in the Chicago Tribune, Paavo will conduct his Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen next summer at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's summer home at Ravinia. (Ooooo, and I see my favorite, viola da gamba master Jordi Savall, will also be appearing there with his early music ensemble Hesperion XXI!)
Season brochures will be mailed to donors in March and to the general public in April. Tickets go on sale April 19 at the festival's Web site, www.ravinia.org. For further information, phone 847-266-5100.
