Written by

The Grant Park Music Festival has announced its upcoming slate of concerts in Millennium Park for the 2015 season. Grant Park principal conductor Carlos Kalmar and chorus director Christopher Bell have lined up another summer of classical crowd-pleasers, though there are some new wrinkles. For the first year, single-night passes for reserved seats in Pritzker Pavilion are available, starting at $25. You can even select your specific seat. As always, you can park your blanket and basket on the lawn for free over the ten-week season. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, May 6.
