Emerson String Quartet at Ravinia
It is believed that Schubert requested to hear Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14 on his deathbed, sharing the composer’s assertion that it was his finest work. In a remarkable synchronicity, Schubert’s own Quartet No. 14, containing several death themes, similarly became one of cornerstones of the string quartet repertory. Both works will glow in the hands of the Emerson String Quartet. Tickets are $40-$60 for reserved seats and $10 for lawn seats.

String Theory at Ravinia
The luminaries that inform Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute piano and strings program, from world-renowned violinists Miriam Fried and Midori to pianist (and former fellow) Alon Goldstein, are well versed in every permutation of string chamber music. Mozart left an indelible mark when he created his First Quintet, K. 174—the addition of a second viola became a standard for centuries to come. Tickets are $40-$60 for reserved seats and $10 for lawn seats.

Country Night in Berwyn with Blue Lorraine, Crazee Heart
Blue Lorraine: If you love to sing country music and you are lucky enough to know the best country musicians for miles and miles...it's about time you do something about it. You might have heard them play as members of the Hoyle brothers and other well known outfits and you may have heard Linda sing a few country tunes here and there. Crazee Heart: John Ballentyne and Gus Noble formed Crazee Heart because they wanted to play their music, their way. They recruited drummer Leslie Walle-Santos and Chicago guitar master Jay Whitehouse. Together they set about building a show that blends John's songwriting craft with a collection of classic and modern covers. Its kind of Americana meets Honky-Tonk and it always ends up rockin'.
