The CAA Events Subcommittee invites you to join us for a free concert in Millennium Park as part of the Grant Park Music Festival.

Grant Park Music Festival concert
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 7
Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu begins his week-long residency with the Grant Park Music Festival with a program featuring Prokofiev’s final symphony paired with contemporary composer Shchedrin’s concerto for orchestra inspired by Russian traveling carnivals.

Please join your fellow archivists  for what promises to be a great evening with a world-class orchestra in a world-class venue. Friends, family, and significant others are all welcome. Pets, unfortunately, are not permitted on the Great Lawn.

Andy Steadham will be out on the Great Lawn before 5:00pm, as close to the Pavilion as possible, to secure a good spot. He’ll be holding up a document box with “CAA” plastered on the side from time to time to help you find us among the crowd. Any outside food and drink, including alcohol, is welcome in the Pavilion during concerts. Blankets and an umbrella (just in case) are a good idea, too.

The Grant Park Music Festival website has a wealth of information on the concert season, the music, and the performers. Check out the Plan Your Visit page for details about the Jay Prizker Pavilion, including park rules, directions, and a map of Millennium Park.

If you have questions, please contact Events Subcommittee member Andy Steadham at

Hope to see you soon.
