Each year approximately 315,000 people attend to hear the Grammy-nominated Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus perform a ten-week season of musical programs at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. The Festival presents a broad repertoire of classical, contemporary, operatic, dance, and world music in 30 free performances.
